Some of you may remember me posting about my little one having trouble at daycare and being very clingy to me and DH the past few weeks. I talked to the woman at the daycare today and she said that Brynna continues to cry but eventually calms down. Her crying varies in length of time. Today she cried for only 20 minutes. Last week they let her cry for 2 1/2 hours before they let her call my Mom. My mom has offered to keep Brynna the next couple of weeks until the baby comes and then I will keep her the 7 weeks that I am off on maternity leave.
My question is do you think it's a good idea for me to just "give in" to Brynna and let my mom keep her or should we hold our ground and continue to send her to the daycare even though she cries every single day? I am so torn because part of me knows that we can't give her the idea that if she cries then she will get to leave like she wants but I also don't want my daughter crying for hours at a time either and if she needs the extra attention from us and our families right now then she should get it. Each solution has it's pros and cons and I am just at a loss right now as to what is the best solution. I guess maybe some outside perspective could help me see things better.
