I had a new 18 month old DCB start this week and I got a big surprise. The new DCB is adjusting a LOT better than I had expected. No issues with naps, separation from DCM, really surprising. BUT my 16 month old DCB that has been in my care for a year IS having MAJOR jealousy issues! He cried for 1 1/2 hours this morning...wanting to be held....not letting the new DCB near me! Any suggestions? I really did not expect this from him!

Thank you so much Michael. Funny thing, when the new DCB went home the jealous one cried because he left. Go figure!

This isn't uncommon, DCB who is jealous will adjust and I bet in a few weeks those two will be good friends
