Can I call HR about my pay?

I’m coming back to work from maternity leave soon. The daycares I’m on the waitlists for won’t have an opening for 2 more months after that. What do you think is the best set up for the 2 interim months without daycare? Hire a nanny to come to the house (convenient but SO expensive), or do a flex arrangement with reduced hours? I’m leaning towards the flex arrangement and either trying to work early in the day and then watching the baby while my husbands at work. Any thoughts or experiences?
