Yes! He finally has a place in nursery! What luck ! But it is not easy to leave your chick in other hands ... How will he do to this new world for him? And if he was tired? Boudeur? The advice of our specialist, Claudine Boucher, early childhood educator.
- Everything is new for your child: the faces, the environment, the rhythms and ... the noise!
Who disturbs it?
- Your child. Sometimes he cries and sulks or falls asleep with exhaustion ...
- You. You feel stressed. Will he adapt, sleep properly? And if he stayed in his corner? Just the idea breaks your heart!
CASE BY CASE SOLUTION
He is already 1 year old!
- One year is ideal to start the nursery! He has passed the cape of "separation anxiety" 8-10 months. His immunity has increased and he knows more about waiting at mealtime.
- What has to be done. Explain to him with simple words that he will go to the nursery. Allow time for adaptation, if possible alternately with your dad: at least three days but sometimes fifteen. The goal? Reassure you! On the spot, exchange with the team, show how you feed it, you change it. And sitting on the floor, at child height, keep your baby in your arms, facing out. Curiosity will win little by little! Make sure that when you leave, it is he who accompanies you to the door.
- What to tell him. "You will be good at the nursery, there are many children and people to take care of you ..."
He's worn out
- 7:30 - 18:30! When you pick it up, your koala baby has a small face and dark circles.
- What has to be done. Rest assured: this fatigue can be a sign that his new life is so passionate about him that he fights against sleep so as not to miss anything. Have you noticed that the biggest room is dedicated to this age group? However, so much the better if you can pick him up a little earlier. Otherwise, do not feel guilty. Naps are available morning and afternoon. Your toddler can also recover from his emotions on a small mattress in the living room, whenever he wants.
- What to tell him. "You're enjoying your days, but luckily this weekend you'll be able to do the marmot."
