    It's incredibly rare. Anyone who has more than one child at home crying at the same time would be in the same situation, so it's illogical to single out child care centres.

    In the nursery they are not all put to bed at the same time (except in the couple in this thread) and are usually patted or rocked in the main area before being put in the sleep room. That way a carer can rock a baby in a rocker while putting another to sleep.

    It can't be helped that they are sometimes left for a few minutes if we are heating bottles, changing nappies, feeding other babies, or dealing with another upset baby but I have never known a baby to be left after waking or when wanting a bottle for more than 5 minutes. Last time we had a particularly sad bubba the director came and got him and took him to the office with his bottle, dummy and blanket and brought him back asleep to put him into bed.

    Well I hope that true, because that seems reasonable to me. Thankfully I'm never going to test it to see, but it might make other peeps feel better knowing that.

    This place sounds horrible.

    Routine is one thing, but this sounds like she's just too lazy to look after the kids, so she shoves them into a sleep room and that's it.

    What do the workers do whilst all the kids are 'sleeping'?

    If I had kids there and knew she left them to cry for so long, I'd probably slap the carer.

    Why get into child 'care' if you're not going to care for the child?

    Share a book can you please pm me the location of this center? Sound alot like the 'routine' at DDs center and I often see babys bawling there I've always been a bit sus of them (and it's a well known, professional center but somethings 'off' and I don't know what)

    Also I can tell you how to get a bit of an idea of where your center ranks!!!

    Everyone listening?

    Don't 'dump and run'. Some centers encourage this but i hang around for 15-20mins chatting & playing with teachers/DD. You can:
    *Count the kid:teacher ratio
    *see how long crying babies are left to cry.

    I've seen heaps more too!

    I've seen 2 babies on 2 different occasion BAWLING for the whole 15 mins I've been there. Blood shot eyes and all. Both times I've picked up the kids and comforted them (even though it's totally against the rules) AND told the parents when I've seen them next.

    I've seen 1 baby proper up on a pillow with a bottle, roll onto her face, start screaming, and no one blinked, again, I fixed her up but didn't know her parents.

    I hate sending DD there but she's almost two and can stand up for herself a bit but she's still in the babies room.

    Another rule we follow is that if they are 15m or under, we hold them to give bottles, if they are over 15m we can put them on cushions or give it to them with a meal. Only a couple of centres vary from that (where I have worked) and only for bubs who prefer with a meal before they reach 15m. We do not prop bottles or leave them unattended at any stage.

    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?
    Sounds very strict and routinal.
    I know that the daycare centre here isn't like that at all, the staff go with the flow following the kids cues, whether they are a bit more relaxed and personal may be due to it being the country small town environment I'm not really sure. I do know that alot of daycare centres including ours prefer babies to go to sleep without an aid such as dummies (which I agree with, I'm not a fan of dummies but that's just me) and nor are babies allowed to go to bed with a bottle which I also agree with.
