Q.

When to send LO to a creche

Morning doctor

I am a stay-at-home-mom and would like to know when will be the right/best time to send little one to a creche. He will be 9 months on the 25th.

I also want to know - LB is still sleeping in our room in his own cot. I want to move him into his own room when we return from vacation on the 30th. Is there anything I must do beforehand to make it easier for him. He knows which room is his as he will crawl to his room to play with his toys and teddies.

Thank you for the help. This is a great site.

Thank you. The answer to your first question is never if you can avoid sending him. Being at home with you will always be of tremendous value to your son.He can go to a play group when he is two years old.
He seems quite ready to move to his own room. Encourage him all the way and make it as much fun as possible.
