How long/ how many days did your LO cry when you dropped them off at daycare? I was a SAHM most of my DD's life and when I did work before, she only stayed with her grandparents. She's 3. It makes me feel so guilty when she cries and I have to leave her. :(

is she only crying when you leave or the whole time? In my experience as a working mom and now a daycare provider the crying stops shortly after you leave. a little girl i watch whom i have had since she was 3 months old recently started crying when her mom would hand herto me as soon as the door clicked closed baby was smiling and wanting to go play with toys. I finally explained it to her mom and told her to listen at the door next time she leaves, she went from feeling guilty to feeling very fooled lol.
My own kids have done it to me when they were younger lots of tears when i drop them off . once i came back 10 minutes later and my son was smiling and laughing and i thought "you lil s^%t"
it really depends on if its departure crying or the entire time, if its new to her give her time and she will do great pretty soon she will run ahead of you to get there and you will feel like crying :)
