Answer: Hi, It would be worthwhile (if you haven't already done this) to chat with his day care providers. Toddlers respond to changes in different ways and generally with time and reassurance and just minimising any other changes for a while, they improve. You could consider inviting one of his little friends over to your place for a "play date", staying a little longer with him at day care and making sure he's settled and fine and then leaving. You could also have him checked by your GP just to make sure that he's well physically and there's not a medical cause for his unsettledness. Best Jane
