2 caregivers, 2 venues?


Please advise on having 2 caregivers with 2 different venues for a 6 month old... example 1 week with 1 person at their home then the next week at another home with a different caregiver... or even 3 consecutive days in a week with 1 then 2 consecutive days by the other or another scenario Monday,Wednesday and Friday at 1 and then Tuesday and Thursday at another...

What affect could this have on the baby both positive and negative and why?

This will be disturbing for such a young baby who after all really needs his mother at this age.Your baby will soon reach the age when babies have problems with separation anxiety.Babies thrive on routine and also require settled surroundings.Your plans with two caregivers at two venues will not be a good idea.
