I am a SAHM who runs a small daycare out of my house. I have a 2 1/2 yr old of my own and am expecting my 2nd in about 8 weeks. I also care for 2 other toddlers. I recently started watching an 8 month old as a favor for a friend who I have known for 9 years.
The problem that I am having is the 8 mo old thinks he must be held all the time! I have tried everything that I can think of and nothing seems to work. I tried bouncy chairs, play gyms, highchairs, swings, sitting with him on the floor to play with toys. If I have to get up and tend to the other children I talk to him to asure him that I am still here and nothing is working BASICALLY, if he is not in my lap or in my arms he is crying.
I have had a heart to heart with my friend and showed her how he acts. It's been 2 weeks since we've had this talk and 4 weeks since I have started watching him. My heart tells me that I just can't take it anymore but I am not one to give up! I don't want to give up!!! I just don't know what to do.
