My daughter just started daycare this week, and she is 6 months old. I have stayed at home with her since birth, so I knew her first week was going to be stressful for both of us. But I found out the very first day that she was left to cry for 40 minutes, and the 2nd day for 45 minutes straight. I was completely shocked and in tears for hours after I found out. Is this okay for her daycare to do, in order to "get her into a routine" as they say? Or is this too long to let her cry?
I just feel like it's a RIDICULOUS amount of time to let her cry, and when she cries it is because she needs something. And if she didn't stop after 10 minutes obviously her needs weren't met.
