My son turn 14 month few days ago, and we just started him in daycare today. He will be going 3 days a week, Monday Wednesday and Friday while I am at work. We used to have a nanny coming in, but her schedule does not work out with my work schedule anymore and I want my son (Jacob) in a setting where he can learn more and socializing at the same time.
The first day was not too bad. He didn't cry much, ate well and play well during the day. But when I picked him up, he started crying and hold on to me tight and wouldn't let me go or even to put in down for one second. He also refuses to nap, only nap for half hour in the caretaker's arm.
Now I kind of worried and not sure what to expect when we got next time. Is there anyone here who also just started daycare for their baby? I figure if there is, we can give each other supports by talking about how you feel and how the day went with the little one at the daycare,ect... Or if you have been through this and survived ( obviously ) any tip on how to make it easier for my baby and how should I cope with this transaction would be really appreciated.
