I'm beside myself. DD, 7 mos., has been in full-time day care since 4 and a half months and had an amazing adjustment. Still, it has been very hard on me and this new problem is just breaking my heart. Apparently, since she came back from being out for 5 days with illness and then normal weekend, she can't be put down. She screams and cries so badly she wakes up all the other babies and people come running from other rooms b/c it is so loud and sad sounding. As long as she as held, she is fine, her usual smiley, talkative self.
My ap instincts tell me that she is going through something and just needs to be held. At home we sling, cosleep, but she doesn't have this problem and can be left to play, etc. for short periods, like any 7 mo. yr. old. She can't sleep at night wihtout me there though and a fair amount of nursing.
I can't quit my job--I'm the main breadwinner and dh can't quit his job right now either. I really like the caregivers and they are being very patient but I'm worried that some version of letting her cry s coming.
I feel very vulnerable and sad about this and would appreciate any posts with advice but pls. no flames.
