Hi --


I'm new to the board and I just wanted to ask a quesiton that has been weighing heavily on my mind.....


DH thinks I am just being "lazy" and do not want to return to work, but the fact of the matter is that I am a control freak (yes i will admit it) and I want to be the one raising my child til I feel he is the appropriate age (1 yo) to go to daycare. My dilemnas with returning to work are that I want to be in control and not leave my son, I nurse full-time (and do not have a big enough milk supply in the freezer), I'm on medicaid (for insurance)and worry that if I return to part-time I will lose my coverage, and if I go to full-time I would need immediate health care. So with this said, I sound like I'm a real piece of work....I would like to come up with a solution so that DH doesn't have to work 2 jobs (1 FT and 1 PT)...


What does everyone think? And does anyone have advice on leaving your little ones to a daycare or MIL to watch??


TIA
-Lindsey

I'm curious to know where you live that 6:1 ratios of infant care is considered legal.
