akazan: I don’t know either. But for some reason we have received a lot of pushback on that. It doesn’t seem to me to be to her benefit to have a tired upset child on her hands. She tried once putting him down at those first tired cues and said it didn’t work and threw the day right off. Funny thing is, I really like his provider, she really wants to run a solid program. But there’s definitely been some differences of styles and approaches.
I would say poor fit. My daycare center absolutely allows 15 month olds 2 naps a day. There are 2 15+ month olds in my daughters class and they both get two naps a day!
I thought I’d post a follow up to this for anyone struggling: we pulled him from that daycare and never looked back. Enough was enough. Best thing we could have done! He started a new daycare placement in a centre program and he adjusted fine! Now he loves it there. We have our happy baby back. Children really tell you in their behaviour even if they don’t have words yet when something isn’t working for them, for him that place was not a good fit at all. The new daycare and him compared to the old daycare and him are like night and day! Thank god we made a change.
Glad you make the move and that your son is happy now. Good job mama!
Thank god you pulled him. I would be extremely nervous about what was going on there.
