I have a baby boy of 17 months.. he is very smart at this age he is able to point out all the body parts and is very good in running on the floors and regarding the potty training his facial expression makes the sign of it and thus just asking him to wait and move to the bathroom he takes it up and waits until he is undressed and made sit on the baby seated of the WC.
At this time he is able to call papa mama baba etc but speaking fully is not done yet . Adding to his behavior he is able to understand all kinds of commands like getting the bottles from table , giving dressed to everyone to get ready to move to the party etc and so on…..
I stay in a joint family and both me and my hubby are working so back at office time he stays with my in laws where I have a nephew of 4 yrs old and is my son best buddy. But to make him comfortable with all the people around we thought of sending him for a summer camp for 10 days where we can see how he reacts with the new people without our presence.
One the first day he was good to see all the kids but he was the youngest and all other kids were on age more than 2+.but in the different section such as the yoga exercise drawing dance and table manner he was really good and was enjoying the things and on the first day even I was just peeping in to see what is he doing…after some time when me and my hubby visited him after 2 hours he was not that excited to see us as he was happy within the kiddos. After coming back home he would point out the balls saying that he played and enjoyed a lot in the school and when we asked do you want to go to the school tomorrow he used to say YES. So we all were very happy to see all this positive things.
But today on DAY-2 he was bit different. He was happy to dress and move to school but there he took much time to get settle which was hardly 15mints on day1.Today his eyes were looking for me only that what I peeped in. When I appeared in front of him and thus he came running towards me … and thus in all the activities today he was not happy and was just looking for me.

His normal timing earlier the camp was as below :

Before Camp After camp
Get up around 9, took bath and then breakfast Get up around 8, breakfast and then move to camp
Play around the house/roam in car with grandpaa till 11.30 and nap time till 2 Back from camp around 10.30- bath and then milk and nap till 1
Lunch around 2.30 Lunch around 2.30
Play around house and sleep around 4 Play around house and sleep around 4

All other activities remains the same as earlier after returning from camp.
After he is back from the camp then I used to come to office and today day2 when he woke up he started crying looking for me saying mama mama.. which was really painful to hear on call. But wasn’t possible for me to be back from office.


But looking into his reaction on DAY2 am bit confused if I did anything wrong as my in laws were dead against it .So please suggest if am doing anything wrong to my little hero.
