I'm just writing this as a bit of a vent. I just went to collect ds from daycare and basically I think they are over him. He has been going for 2 months for a day a week (I know more days are easier etc. but intil I go back to work we just can't afford it). He goes only for an hour and screams the whole time he is there to cuddle mummy and by then he's so distressed and upset he has to come home.
One of the carers ignores me now when I come in (which I have a feeling she thinks I'm just a pain in the butt!) and the other one this morning when I asked how he was she just said its been 2 months its not normal for him to be like this normally after 2 weeks they are fine and said its not working. No one can calm him down, he just screams and screams the whole time. DP blames me and says I've created this by being too soft on him etc. but his younger brother is the complete opposite and its fine doing anything without me and I've treated them the same.
Ds would never take a bottle a at 2.5 I've tried so many times to wean but he is so stubborn and gets so distressed I've never been successful. He won't sleep without me, he just wont do anything without me..not even stay at home with his father! I just don't know what to do. How do you help them get over their separation anxiety? His brother is so different. Takes a bottle, goes to sleep as soon as he is put in the cot, sleeps wonderfully. I'm just so upset that this has been so hard.
