Oh dear, we’ve come to the end of day 2 with the childminder and again you’ve been upset.
I so desperately don’t want her to hate you. I don’t want her to think you’re the difficult baby.
I love you so very much and know she never will but I want her to like you. To see your adorable smile.
I want her to like playing with you and to help you to develop.
I just want you to be safe and happy in her care.
I know it’s not her. I see her all the time at school and all the other children are happy.
It’s such early days and I know you need time to adjust but it breaks my heart that you are so sad in the day. She’s told me that today whilst you were out and about you were better but from 3pm you cried. She reassures me theres no tears but still you are obviously distressed.
You’ve barely drunk the breastmilk that I have left for you but she said you’ve eaten so that’s good I suppose.
I wish you could understand why I have to leave you there. I leave you there because I love you and want to be the best person I can be by going to work.
Please don’t change little guy, it’ll be ok. We can work through this.
