I started dd1 (3) one day a week in daycare to give me a break and time alone with bubs 6 weeks ago. She has always been looked after by me or mum when I'm at work.
She is becoming increasingly resistant to going. She used to be excited by the idea but now is not. When I mentioned it was daycare day today she burst into tears and begged to stay with me. I'm struggling to get her ready.
She's still not interacting with other kids, preferring the company of adults. She has an ok time there but refuses to eats their food. It takes her approx 30 minutes to stop crying at drop off, clinging to her blankie all day.
Adding an extra day is not possible at the moment as there isn't a space.
I'm unsure what to do. I really like the break- I look forward to it- but it isn't essential and I'm feeling awful.
I also worry about her developing social skills.
