I have 3 aged 20 months and under and my own baby who wakes in the night so I sort of know how you feel. I did this thread shortly after starting back and you'll see I had 2 screamers!!! I'm not sure how long this has been going on but agree about the children sensing things. I gave it a short time and luckily things have turned around. It may be worth looking at my thread in case anything anyone said on that may be helpful.
As much as you need the money hun, if this keeps on for too long, you must give notice for EVERYONE's sake. I had a major screamer for few hours once a week when I was heavily pg and I stopped during his settling in as was obvious he would never settle before my maternity leave as he wasn't here long enough.
Must go but just wanted to say sometimes it's just a phase and sometimes it's just not going to work and you have to call it a day. How long have you had this baby for?
Sorry i know it must be hard if the baby is so upset but you NEED to speak to the parents and lose at least one, you cant carry on like this, people will see you stressed and that is bad for business and the children WILL sense your not happy even though im sure you are a good cm..also knowing what its like doing this job i wouldnt even bother making myself ONE cuppa a day as i would NEVER get time to drink it so dont be too disapointed thats just normal!
have decieded i can no longer do this job. 7 till 7 5 days aweek with hardly any other hols in btween. will give notice till xmas before if they will let me. it was all fine until eyfs. i am up sooooo late at night getting stuff done. the bany is settled and a sibling to other one. teething badly and parents wont allow me to give anything.
