Our expert says:
Ativan is not an antidepressant at all. Your depression deserves respect and proper diagnosis and treatment - do, please, see a properly qualified psychiatrist for a full assessment and a discurrion of available treatments, both genuine antidepressants and CBT counselling - and get his advice on smoothly coming off Ativan.
And an anxious mom tends to produce an anxious child, so this would benefit both of you.
Your child may well be USED to the day-mother, but won't prefer her. She may even get to expect to spend time with her by day, becasue that's how her life goes, and be pleased to see you when she can.
I understand it can hurt to hear her call the other woman "mamma", but she has to call her sopmething, and this is probably the routine at that creche - it doesn't have for your child the special meaning it of course has for you.
There is no way whatever that you are a bad mom, or that your child thinks so - she's simply takin g events as they come, and it is the quality of the time you spend with her that she will remember all her life
