Q.

1st day at creche today - mom more sad

Please tell me that it will get better. My baby girl of 18 months started creche today for the first time and she cried alot. She was fine when we got there and looked at this new place but as soon as we walked to her class she was holding on for dear life. I cried more than her - I' m so sad and my heart is in pieces. Please just tell me it gets better. I know people say that she will cry for 3 days or even more just to get into a routine. The school that she is going to is really nice and the people looks nice. I just want them to look after my baby the way I would.

This is a perfectly normal reaction. Your little daughter's creche sounds really good. Things will get easier.

My 7month old girl also went to the creche today for the first time. When I left her there, she looked at me with questionmarks in her eyes. Probably thinking why am I leaving her with strangers. I cried all the way to work. It' s the worst thing to do. Hope you soon feel better.
