Daycare Transition Update
We are now almost 2 solid weeks into daycare, and I’m happy to report that after a very rocky start it’s finally going a bit better!
The first week was so bad I was very tempted to remove him and just find another nanny. He cried all day, every day for 4 solid days. By the 4th night he’s been so upset during the day that he basically had no voice left. It was excruciating for me knowing he was this upset. In fact, it was so bad that I refused to drop him off at daycare because I couldn’t bare to see my little boy that upset. My inability to be around last week to help with drop-offs and to pick him up early was probably the only two benefits of me working so much!
But we are now at the end of week 2 and it’s been significantly better. Not perfect, but better. Mr. MPB is still doing the drop-offs and tells me he still cries at drop off, but not nearly like before. Evidently it’s more like a whimper. During the day he now plays with other kids, rather then being held all day long by one of the teachers. His naps are improving. He’s smiling in the pictures they send us throughout the day. He doesn’t need his soother all day long to help comfort him.
These are all signs of improvement in our minds.
I recall everyone telling me that it would improve as Little MPB adapted to his new daily routine. And, it appears that everyone is right.
But, I’ll admit, knowing it is a process doesn’t make it any easier to know he’s so upset!
