If you are bringing up your first child, you may find that the process can be exciting but also scary. From time to time, it is completely normal to question if you are a good parent or not. Of course, every parent wants to do their very best for their child, so sometimes making big decisions such as if you should send them to a daycare centre can be difficult. The idea of leaving your child is someone else's hands might fill you with anxiety.
We have the trickiest time finding childcare for our baby, as we both do shift work. My husband is a police officer, and I'm a doctor, so we always seem to struggling to get someone to look after our son when we are at work at nights. We want to know that he is being loved and cared for even when we are not there. Luckily we have a great childcare service that is flexible, and sometimes we can leave our son longer if we need to work later or if emergencies arise. This blog is about juggling childcare for shift workers.
