Perhaps leaving her now is just too soon? I'm worried that letting her CIO, so-to-speak, could be detrimental to her wellbeing since she is so young.
Ok I am very confused. You need care 2 times a week for 4 hours each so 8 hours total. Even if she isn't drinking a bottle for provider.. she can go 4 hours. I have had many kidos that started out not drinking as much for me and waiting for mom.
If your comfortable with the provider you have chosen and she is not complaining about your child crying I would let the two of them figure out what works for them.
If I am reading this right 2 days a week, so she has been there 2 1/2 weeks. With the 2 days it will take her a while to figure out the pattern! Children need lots of repetition to figure out what is going on.
Instead of staying, I might drop her off for an hour and a half and then pick up. Work up to the 4 hours.
As a provider I could not accommodate you staying for 4 hours!
