I almost have no memories of the bad drink I had when I left my daughter in nursery school or daycare for the first time, but those days I am living the same situation in third person. A co-worker is having a hard time with the first days of her baby in the nursery. We are all expectant in the writing with the adaptation of your little one, as if it were ours. At the end of the day, all or almost all of us have had the same experience, right?
How to help the baby in adapting to school
Could it be that today he has run out of tears? How will it be today: crying or smiling? The mother tells us that on the first day it was very hard because when she went to pick him up, her cheeks were red from so much crying. The baby cries, the mother cries, the older brother, the father and even the grandmother, with whom the child has been in his first two years. Can you imagine the scene? It is a fact that happens in many homes, especially when parents have to return to work after the holidays.
The adaptation is hard but necessary. It requires patience and a lot of determination, especially from parents. And although we all know how we have to act and that the baby is well attended and cared for, and that as the days go by he will get used to it and have a great time, the suffering of separation is inevitable for both babies and parents. .
Follow some tips for parents on how to help your baby adjust to school, daycare or kindergarten:
1- Join your baby to school and say goodbye to him in a very natural and safe way that will be best for him.
2- Do not let your baby see or notice that you are having a bad time or that you are suffering.
3- It is not recommended that the baby, at the beginning, stay all day at school. The best thing is that the little one is adapting little by little. One, two or three hours a day, for at least the first week.
4- Do not forget to take a pacifier or a favorite toy to your baby. That will give you more security.
5- Try that the first days of your baby's school does not coincide with other changes, for example, diaper removal, house changes, etc.
6- If your baby is sick, do not take him to school. He will feel doubly annoyed and will also be able to infect the other babies.
7- When you pick up your baby at school, take time to play with him, take him to the park or do an activity together.
8- And finally, do not forget that we all need some time to adapt to new situations.
How to help parents in the separation
The most important thing in the initiation to the infant school is the babies, to give them support and affection so that they adapt as best as possible. However, do not forget all those moms and dads who leave school with tears in their eyes and with a feeling of grief. For them we also have advice. Letting go and crying when the baby can no longer see us is positive and releases tension.
Do not hesitate to talk with your partner or relatives to express your feelings. It will also help you, share experiences with other parents who have been through the same situation. I have cried a lot and I will never forget that.
