    I'd be upset too. Have you considered family daycare? There are some downsides (like if educator is sick or on holidays, you need a plan b), but if you can find a great educator the upsides are worth considering. I have utmost trust in my FDC educator, and I appreciate the direct line of communication with the person actually caring for my little one whilst I'm at work. I visited a lot of centres and FDC educators, and came down to two lovely FDC educators that I really clicked with. I've since made friends with some of the other mums and DS has made some lovely friends - our educator seems to attract like minded mums and children. Day care is such a personal choice though, and what suits one parent or child might not suit the next.

    Good luck!!

    Whoah, that's seriously just effed up! How in the hell could they leave a barely clothed baby on the cold floor!?!? That's just neglectful. The formula thing was bad enough, but this would be the final straw for me! Hope you can get a spot somewhere else soon.

    Wow, seriously what the hell are they thinking in that daycare centre?

    You questioned before whether you would just face the same problems at another centre and I honestly believe you wouldn't, unless you were extremely unlucky.

    Most daycare centres are wonderful places for kids, the educators are honest and experienced and have a passion for what they do.

    This sort of stuff would never happen at my kid's centre. Yes we have had issues, but what is happening with your son is verging on neglect and then trying to cover it up or just not having answers. It's completely unacceptable.

    I hope you find another centre soon! I believe this time of year (October-November) a lot of centres start having vacancies so you might not have to wait long.

    @turquiosecoast make an appointment with another centre (or a few) and see if you can see the director. Tell them what's happening to your son and ask for an urgent placement. It's not regular but I know it happens. Don't just go on a wait list sit down with someone in control and talk to them.

    At the same time tell the director of your centre again. This is not acceptable. Tell them you may have to pull your son and report them.

    Don't let them get away with this. Unfortunately this is the start of many battles you will have for your child. I pick my battles with school but God help them if my kids get treated badly or unfairly. Full mamma bear comes out and they really know about it.

    Turn your anger into action. Your son won't know anything but my kids all know now they're older that I have their back and I've had it since they were babies.

    How warm was it in the room? I don't see much wrong with a baby laying on the floor in an undershirt (what is an undershirt .t shirt? Long sleeve? Singlet?). Babies lay on the floor all the time, that's what they do. Most baby rooms are quiet warm. Of course it all depends on the specifics of the room (temp, type of flooring concrete v carpet etc).

    Putting an extra layer on your child when going to the car is normal where I live. It's not necessarily a sign the carers are doing anything wrong - just a sign that inside is warmer than outside.
