So, now that Nate is a little over one, he’s being transitioned from the infant room at daycare to the toddler room. That means lower rates for me, but whatever, that’s not the point of this post. Transitioning him means getting him down to only one nap a day (the toddlers are only at one nap a day) and introducing him to the new teachers and his new classmates. So Nate had thirty minutes in the toddler room this morning and he cried the entire time. I think that it was a combination of tiredness (he’d been up since five this morning without a nap), separation anxiety and just being overwhelmed – new teachers, new room and new classmates. Is this normal? Has anyone else ever experienced this with their children and daycare?
Lately, Nate has also been waking up at like midnight, even where he goes to sleep at his normal time. Then, he’ll have a bottle and go back to sleep. This is totally disappointing – I thought that we had dropped night feedings. We’re trying to increase the amount and diversity of solid food that he gets during the day, so that he’s not hungry at night.
