I still think that at this age, going to work with mom is better than day care. Watching mom work will probably provide some good stimulation; you will notice that he is very busy checking out what is going on around him. You will also be able to hold him occasionally if needed. Time spent actually reading is less important than just having time with mom – at this age. You will be able to sing in the car and do some fun playtime at home.
“My daughter Noa is 2-months-old and I am returning to work. Luckily, I am able to take her to work with me every day, and I have a play area for her in my office. I am worried that I won’t be able to provide enough stimulation for her, and that maybe day care is better. How much time each day should be spent reading, singing, and playing, etc. with my baby?”
