The second day of daycare was better than the first, but Maya, her daycare provider, and I are all pretty unhappy with the situation. She did much better with her bottles, so the next thing to tackle is sleep. She is napping now and for the first time in a long time I got her to go down without nursing to sleep. I put her down while she was still awake and she cried and kicked and fought it for a minute or two. I held her while she cried and, much to my surprise, instead of winding up, she paused, cried again paused, cried again, and then went to sleep. I don’t think I would have been ok with leaving her to cry it out, but since I was right there holding her and reassuring her it felt less cruel to me.
