A lot of moms feel guilty when they have to go back to work after having their babies, and they have to leave their babies with somebody else.

But experts say that shouldn't be the case.

Tracy Lehman, a marriage and family therapist associate, said, “Daycare is really healthy for babies. They learn a lot of social skills. They get comfortable and ready for school from doing that. And so it is positive so that guilt that kind of helps with that guilt because a lot of moms do feel guilty that their child is in daycare.”
