I agree with u guys being also a stay and working part time at home dad myself. Eventually I need to work in future to ease our burden of living expenses, so day care will be the reasonable choice. My baby is only 9 months old, so too early into public day care and not so urgent to hire private nanny. Better time to send child to day care is when she can walk and get along with other kids. Indeed being a man acting silly and singing lullaby to a baby is unusual. Besides shopping trips and meals, we haven't taken baby outside of home much. That leaves baby shy and she cries when strangers suddenly jump in front. Even the baby will cry or simply be scared and stare at others at start, we need to continue to let her get used to outside environments more. Inside large shopping malls, there are some free to go kids playground, and same for large McDonalds. Not sure about your area, but these playgrounds I've seen don't always have mostly moms inside. During the weekends, more likely both moms and dads will participate also.
