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?

That's a big reason why I don't have my kids in CC.
I can't trust others to parent my kids like I do.

Outraged. I'm outraged just reading that. I'd pull my kids out in a heartbeat. That's deplorable.

That is crazy!!! I don't understand how they are in business!! I do let my kids cry a little.. Not long as my bubs is only small so only around a few minutes and then I try to pat him to sleep and if that fails he ends up in the sling!
I could never do it that strictly.

Wow, just wow! Both my kids only ever slept for an hour a day from about 8-9months so they would be left to cry for 3hrs. Disgusting! Another reason I would never put my babies in cc.

OMG thats terrible!!!
My boys have always had routine, and I think most children including babies benefit from routine, but that is just crazy!
I wonder if those parents of bubs know about this? My boys never went to cc when they were young, my eldest goes now to the kindy program and although they have routine, it can always be adjusted depending on the kids.

I can not believe they can do this and any parent who is ok with it I would be questioning IMO this is borderline abuse leaving a young child to cry wihtout consoling them once in awhile is so sad to me. They must be wondering where is mom or dad why is no one coming to help me. Makes me sad to think about it

This is one of the reasons I personally wouldn't put a baby in DC. They can't tell you what's happening. That was heart breaking reading that, and my child, no matter the age would be pulled from the centre if I learned they were doing this. Leaving a little baby to cry for 2 hours is abuse imo

That just broke my heart
