    It gets easier! It really and truly does!
    I bawled like a baby the first day we put LO in daycare. OH thought I was nuts, I was blubbering like an idiot! The second day was a bit easier, and each day after that got a bit easier.
    I work in daycare too. Just remember that after a short adjustment time, each and every child there ends up loving it, and having a great time. Your LO will too!

    It does get easier hun I promise! It is stressful at first, but you will all get used to it and get into a routine and then it will all be hunky dory!
    I was dreading work, but now I love it. Not necessarily the practive I am at, but being at work with adults, doing what I was trained to do is brill!

    He had his first settle today quite proud of myself for not crying as soon as we got in the door. But then I handed him over to one of the staff and said bye to him and that was it he stuck out his bottom lip started whimpering then started crying. I stood outside listening to him having a wee cry to myself, while he was in the room crying and saying mamama. Got me so upset :( his next one is on thursday so will see how that goes. Thanks for all your replies x
