One thing my wife and I have discussed and debated with regards to our baby girl is how we want to handle childcare, considering we both work full time jobs. And I’m guessing we’re not alone in trying to figure out the best childcare options (for infants especially).
Our general debate was “daycare or in-home nanny” because those were really the only viable options to us, especially at an age when our daughter isn’t yet going to school.
However, there are obviously a lot of other options available that we first considered before narrowing it down to the two options that seemed most realistic to us. So before I get into my specific analysis of the best childcare options, let’s go through the different types of childcare available, and the pros and cons of each.
I promise, this isn’t as difficult as it seems.
