i can't do it... nursery. :(


i am dreading handing jake over to go to nursery one day. i don't know why.
it really bothers me.
i just feel like i can't trust anybody with him. that sounds really stupid!!

it's really irrational and stupid. i just can't imagine me ever doing it..

maybe im just a huge worrier!!

I don't think its irrational. Its totally natural to not want to let them go to nursery etc. . . It's such a huge thing and it can evoke many emotions. Its a big change in life, don't feel silly

It is not silly at all, it is natural to feel that way. Abigail has been going to childcare since she was five months old and I STILL don't like handing her over, even though I know she will be fine. It will get easier once you have done it a few times and you know he is happy and settled. These things are far worse for us than for them though.

Its not stupid at all! No one can love and care for your child like you can and its a big step to take preparing lo for that big wide world it does seem scary and is worrying! Your lo will be fine though, and the experience of nursery will help alot to prepare for school. I know what you mean though xx

it really is a horrible feeling. it does sound really bigheaded that i feel like no one will do what i do if you know what i mean.
im worrying about silly things, like, what if they forget to give him food lol. or they don't give him some milk or let him have a nap! ridiculous!!!

its not silly! I am having to elt my hubby take over and i feel like its my job! I keep asking him "have you given him his snack?" "have you offered him water" "dont forget his nap" "whens the last time you changed his diaper?" and many many more!

Its not that i dont trust my husband with my son...i just cant trust anyone to do things exactly how i want them done and i worry that if they arent done some unimaginable disaster is heading our way which of course is silly. i should just learn to relax about it...much easier said then done!

Definitely don't feel silly It's a huge change for you and LO, and I totally see where you're coming from. I was in bits when Charlie started at 10 months - the guilt was overwhelming sometimes. I really had no choice but to go back to work Luckily, he settled in quite quickly and the staff were really good about me phoning 20 times a day for the first few weeks
He loves it now and I'm happy with the care he gets there. Hopefuly your LO will love it too and you won't be so worried. Congrats on your new baba too
