have LOs in daycares? I'm looking at putting my 3yo into one soon; and I'm kind of nervous about snacks and stuff. I'm wondering if you have yours in daycares/preschools, and how they do with it? Are there any major issues you have or tips?

I don't but the thought scares me to death. I was going to put him in preschool 2 days a week this fall but he isn't potty trained yet so I couldn't. My mom has a daycare and when we go down there she, his grandmother, does not put the peanut butter up high or put unsafe foods out of his reach...I think gosh if she won't do it then how could I trust total strangers to? But then again she refuses to believe he actually has these allergies (peanuts and cats). The thought of putting him in someone else's hands scares me totally.

Yea, I've thought that way too....but my mom also mentioned when we talked about that once that it could be that the family feels "safe" as far as not being held directly responsible if something happens. So on the opposite hand, if he's in the care of someone who's not related to me; it would be more likely that they'd feel-and would be- (legally) responsible if something happened. So theoretically they'd be more likely to be more careful. IDK, we are in the same boat with the potty training thing.

I kind of think that too....if it's someone outside of the "comfort circle" they will be more apt to control the surroundings so to speak. I hope he's potty trained by next fall b/c I really want him in a small church preschool so he gets interaction with other kids to get ready for school.....

That's exactly what I'm looking at with Toby! He is doing ok with Pt, but he's not there yet by any means.

I don't. We have this "preschool" class offered in our town, a 4 week program 2 days a week. He's been before but it was with his big brother. I felt better having my older son there to watch out for him. My older son has aged out of the program and I was still thinking about sending L. But the more I think about it, the more I get worried about him being on his own. Plus, it being flu season and possibly the swine flu going around, I am triply worried. So I pretty much decided against it.

I have my kids in Daycare. They have notes from the dr for Jeremy's lactose allergy. They ensure he gets soymilk everyday instead of milk. They are very good about it and if you bring in treats for the kids they have to be store bought and not contain things like peanut butter and such that they have kids who are allergic to. They are very good about keeping my kids safe. I would just look into the daycare/preschool a whole lot before placing them there and ensure they practice safe handling.
