i have a 16 month old and i put her in daycare about a month ago. i switched out daycares after two weeks because the first one was awful with security. i like the one she is at now, she cries when i leave her and she runs crying to me when i go pick her up. i noticed that ever since i put her in daycare though, she hasnt been eating right and she'll wake up in the middle of her naps crying and not wanting to be touched. ill try to hold her but she gets angrier. i have to let her cry it out and wait until she comes to me. is this normal since its a HUGE change for her. she has only ever been with me or my mom when i work. please help!

It is a huge change, and she's nearing the peak of separation anxiety. Wait it out. If you're *really* worried, have her doctor examine her or pop in to the daycare during the day to see how she's doing. If they don't let you, find a new daycare.
