    Help i have a 7 month old son, who for the last week has been at the childminder .
    On his first day he cryed from 3 on wards untill i got a call at 5 saying could i come and get him NOW!
    The next day was not so bad but would not drink anything all day.

    she has him 3 days a week and he will only cat nap and not drink and scream for me.

    I have just had 3 days with him, and she has had him back today and i get a call at 3 to say come and get him, she said i need to get him to take from a bottle and to sleep for her, she said to bring him back in a few weeks and try him again.

    What do i do i need to work but she will not have him she said all he want is me help!

    Erm,

    Is this a childminder you've used before who you trust to be handling the situation appropriatley?

    Other than that, no clue i'm afraid but lots of luck!

    Can you find someone to come into your home, and keep him in his own environment? He's at the stage of development where, when you are gone, he doesn't realize that you are coming back. So, you see he fears that he'll not ever see you again.

    It will pass, but it's quite difficult getting there sometimes.

    disclaimer: I know nothing about children and so shouldn't really be sticking my nose in :)

    However, a lady I worked with years ago had exactly the same problem. She went through months of angst and stress. Finally the relationship between her and the child minder broke down to the extent she looked elsewhere.

    Within one week of being at the new place, her son was happy and the new child minder said there was no problem at all.

    Whether it was the child minder wasnt very good, perhaps the chemistry between her and the son was just wrong. I don't know, like I say, I have no children experience, but I know that she wishes she'd moved the child far sooner than she did.

    Problem is she has had both James and Holly who ar my children and Holly is still there. She is very very good, I have to say that as she had both of the children from 9 weeks old but poor Zach is 7 months old, so know what is going on around him. Even with Aunty Holly there he is still missing mum. Poor Angela is stuck in the middle. So for the rest of the week he will be at work with us, but then he knows he has his own way. Once he settles down hopefully he will be fine.

    nightmare! i hate the whole childcare thing, i'm guessing she wouldn't want to lose 3 children's business though so maybe you could come to an agreement?

    When you drop him off in the morning can you leave an item of clothing with him that you wore the previous day - if he can smell you he might not miss you so much?

    Sounds like a lame excuse to me... she seems to want your baby to feed then sleep making it easy for her... go find someone who's willing to be a childminder and not a lazy bum.

    I don't mean that harshly but come on.... 3 til 5 is only two hours... what's she doing in those two hours? I'm sure she could somehow comfort the baby in some way.... you just can if you try hard enough, you somehow hit on something that works. I don't think she's trying hard enough... maybe I'm being too harsh?????

    I just re read it... and I am being too harsh but when it comes to kids I get all protective cos they can't help themselves but the adult can... the childminder I felt gave up too easily.

    I think Zach is there for longer than 2 hrs Helly. I might be wrong though.
