My 2 year old daughter is still crying after 1.5 mos in daycare

My baby girl is still crying after 1 and half month in daycare. Is this normal? When I drop her off in the daycare today, her teacher were playing with the other kids at the front yard. The moment when my daughter saw her teacher she became so panic and ran back to my car. I tried to grab her and put her back to school, she wouldn’t listen and try to escape while crying so hard. It was such a hard time to catch her and finally pass her to the teacher. I asked her to give me a reason why she hates school, she couldn’t explain. Do you guys have any experience on what happen or is this reallly normal? I want to do something to help in the transition. I tried talking to her a lot at home and tell her everybody love her at school but still doesn’t help…

My daughter doesn’t want to talk!

My daughter will be 20 months this month and she understands and knows what we are saying to her but the words don’t want to come out. We talk to her and tell her to say words but nope nothing. She only says mom, banana and pata (foot in Spanish) today she did say ready but was saying Duddie. She gets frustrated when she can’t talk.

Breastfeeding Issues

Has anyone had issues with their milk supply, I get 5 ounces my whole day at work from pumping, and she drinks 5 ounces every two hours, on the weekends when I'm home with her all day she'll start crying and rubbing her face on me when I "run out" and everyone says it's supply and demand but eventually ill give up after an hour or so and give her formula and she just chugs it down like she was starving to death. I know it can't magically be fixed but does anyone have recommendations of anything that actually helped them boost their milk supply that I could try?

Having a hard time with my child using the phone to watch videos

My daughter loves watching music videos of cocomelon and has a fuss when it’s time to eat. She points at the phone for me to turn on the music and I’m glad she finishes all her food but she hardly pays attention to me feed her or if I want her to eat on her own. I need advice on what I can do.

BEHAVIOR & DEVELOPMENT

Stranger anxiety and very clingy

My 15 month old daughter is petrified of large groups (8+ people). She starts bawling and screaming non-stop when people get close to her and the only way to stop her is to take her away from people. She seems to do well in smaller settings (less than 6-7 people). We have been heavily constrained due to this and hardly get to meet all our friends at once. Also, these days, she easily gets upset at little things and if we try to leave her alone, the intensity of her crying reaches epic proportions. We are planning to send her to daycare and are worried that her future provider may decide not to take her in due to this behavior.

We are completely clueless. Any advice is appreciated.

Government subsidy accepted

I’m new to childcare and applying at places but I do have two sons and I do receive WIC and Calfresh. I want to apply to child cares but there to expensive for me. I do see how some say “government subsidy accepted” and was wondering if someone can explain what that is and how would I go about getting the help?
