My son will be 1 on May 19, we started him at a day care last Monday (3/5 days).
1st day - When we dropped him off he was fine, didn't even cry. When I went to pick him up he was crying, the teacher mentioned he was fine all day but when he saw other parents taking their kids that is when he started crying.
2nd day - he cried a little when I dropped him off, and the teacher said he cried on and off throughout the day.
3rd day - same as 2nd day.
Today when I dropped him off as soon as we walked into the room he clinked on to me and started crying. I called mid morning and they said he would cry on and off but he didn't want his milk nor breakfast. I called during lunch and he was still crying on and off, still didn't want milk, water or anything, so I stopped by during lunch and took him something to eat. The moment he saw me he started crying. I gave him the food I took him and he devoured it. You could tell he was hungry. But the moment he sees me get up he starts crying.
Please advise. I feel terrible. I don't know what to do.
