I just learnt from a mummy friend that one nursery is run to a strict routine.
Babies under 6 months are in the sleep room from 9.30 to 11.30, 12.30 to 2.30 and 3.30 until 5or until their parents get there. They are fed at 8.30, 12 and 3.15 exactly, and are given 15 minutes max to finish a bottle, if they take longer then they musn't want it.
Babies 6 to 12 months are in the sleep room from 9 to 11 then from 1 to 3. They are given bottles just before 9am, then just before 1pm, they are given lunch at 11.30 then a snack at 3.30.
Babies over 12 months are in the sleep room from 11.30 to 2.30, and are only given a bottle with lunch. They have morning tea at 9, lunch at 11 and bottle, and afternoon tea at 3.
If they are provided more bottles they are sent home with older bubs, or tipped out and written up for younger bubs.
If they don't sleep they are left to cry. If they wake earlier, they are left to cry. Sometimes for over 2 hours.
If dummies are provided, they are only given to babies up tp 6 months for sleep, and not given to babies over 6 months.
The worker in the room never let her own kids manipulate her, and is not about to let other people's kids manipulate her. (her words)
How would you feel about that?
