  1. Hi therе to every body, it’s my first visit of this web site; this web site consists of awesome and really fine material in favor of visitors.

    My parents and my mother in law kindly take my 15 month old daughter on the 3 days a week that I’m now back at work.

    My mother in law follows everything to the T. In fact if you don’t write it down or physically show her everything you need her to do (including how to push the on button on our clothes dryer), she will get frazzled and just won’t know what to do.

    My parents on the other hand, they think that I’m too strict with my routines and for the first few months of me being back at work, they decided to follow it loosely but they realised when she didn’t settle down to sleep or didn’t sleep much in the day, it was purely because of what they were doing, not that she was just in a different environment. Thankfully they have figured out how to do it all properly and know at her age, she is now pushing the boundaries and will cry if she thinks they will come back into the room. She’s been a self settler since 8 months old – she knows how to do it 😉

    It’s great having family support, so point 5 in your post just isn’t possible, though some times I have seriously considered just putting her into child care!

    I’ve had the same issue with her food. My parents used to give her things I told them not to (she has some strange allergies) but that’s a whole other story for a whole other day on a completely different website 😉

    Having a high needs sleep baby in a daycare environment is something I understand all too well. As much as we may want our care givers to stick to a schedule and routine, there are things that they can/cannot do, by law (like leave the other children alone to rock your LO). It’s all a game of weighing the positives against the negatives. Fortunately, my LO was helped out a lot by the 2-1 transistion. Now that he’s on 1 nap, I don’t worry about daycare as much anymore.

    • @Amanda That’s great that the transition to one nap helped a lot. I find that’s true for many babies and toddlers. The first year in daycare seems to be the hardest. Thank you for chiming in!

      @Kleo Haha! That’s great that your parents have “seen the light” when it comes to helping your baby sleep better. It sounds like you have a great childcare set-up and have found your “village.” So awesome and thank you for sharing!
