    Hi mummas,
    My boy is almost 1.5 years old and am thinking of sending him to a day care for may be 1-2 hours daily just so he can interact with kids his age. We live in an apartment and he is cooped up with me almost all the time. We do take him to the near by park but we live in the middle east and summer is almost upon us. So going out might not be an option soon. He has not been away from me till date.So day care is going to be painful for both him and me..any tip to make this transition smoother is also welcome.

    As you already said, its going to be a huge change for you and your LO. The crying part is most difficult to get over and may last for a month. As a mom, you need to stay clam.
    For a daycare I will look into the reviews and it's popularity in the community. Per classroom student-teacher ratio, hygiene and cleanliness schedule, potty training methods and how they encourage it. As you mentioned you will be sending in for just 1 or 2 hour I assume he will have his lunch and naps at home, but if you consider sending him half day, Look into what does daycare provide like snacks, milk, lunch,etc.
