I have an in home daycare. There is one 10 month old that cries all day long.... I try feeding him and changing him. He refuses to take a nap, even when he is exhausted. I don't know what to do. He wants me to hold him all day long, and I can't and won't do that. I try to spend time with him and if I am playing with him directly, he seems to be ok. As soon as I even stand up and take a few steps away (to attend to another child, go to the bathroom....anything) he freaks out. I have no idea how to handle this. What should I do? He will be a year old soon and I am trying to figure out how a sleep schedule will work. I can't allow him to stay up while everyone else has to take a nap. He's only here 3 days a week, but its extra hard on those days because MOST days he just isn't happy. HELP!
