I need to come back to work after my maternity leave, but I don’t know how to trust a babysitter. What can I do???
Hello dear mothers! My maternity leave is soon to be over, and I need to come back to work leaving my little baby at home with a babysitter. I found a woman with a good babysitting experience who seemed really nice to me. Yesterday I left my daughter with her for a few hours, but when I came to take my baby back, I heard her crying as soon as I stepped to the door. When I came inside, I found out that my daughter was barely eating all day, she had less than a half of all the milk that I left. So if I can’t even leave her for a few hours, how can I trust her to a babysitter for the whole day five days a week? I could stay on maternity leave for even longer, but I consider it as a weakness. I want to work and move up the career ladder but at the same time I am really worried about leaving my baby with a stranger. Has anyone had the same situation?
