    thank you for all ayour helpful replies and shadowangel for taking the time for your reply. its much appreciated and very supportive at this time.
    we were told yesterday the coordinator would call us so that any letters etc could be prepared so that there were no hitches with the child being in care today
    the coordinator did not call
    apparently the coordinator is too busy as she works at various schools and isnt just the coordinator of this childcare centre
    first thing in the morning the coordinator wasnt there. no papers were prepared despite them knowing to assure over the weekend that we had all info so the child would be in care.
    even when the coordinator arrived they didnt get back to me they didnt seem to know which forms they wanted and they seemed to be busy and making it up as they went along.
    finally i told all of this to the pediatrician and asked him to hassle them as they seemed to have no intention of getting their act together with whatever papers they wanted to allow a completely wel baby back into creche.
    the baby was put into hospital for observation over the last days and was fed b y nose to be fully hydrated, to regain weight , and to get better and he is no longer vomiting. another dr also gave a parasite treatment and he was energetic and not vomitting and eating alot since having the parasite treatment. we had been overseas recently. though no parasite or other info showed up with first dr.
    the pediatrician will write no dairy but because they are terrorising us so much we dont dare ask them to please continue the no wheat no gluten as per the diet of last year as we just need the child back in care.
    they changed coordinator and the new coordinator is very difficult, the last one was much warmer nicer, saner, helpful and available.

    So the child has been back in hospital in the last few days? Still unwell, no diagnosis?

    I don't think you can expect the director of the child care centre to call you on a weekend? Yesterday being Sunday??

    I think it also needs to be said that this is a child care centre, not a hospital or medical clinic that looks after unwell children. The centre also needs to look after the other how ever many children are in the room.

    I would get the paperwork signed by the doctor/pediatrician and return it to the centre. They need to know what they are dealing with and how best to look after your child. If they are not content with the answers they are getting from you, then they need these answers from the treating medical team.

    If you are unhappy, maybe have a look at other centres in your area where you may have a better time communicating with the staff about your child.

    Why do you refer to your son as "the child" ?

    The daycare is doing the right thing by excluding him. Last week you were adamant that he was fine and just had food aversions, but now he's been in hospital on a feeding tube and needing parasitic treatment. When you say parasite, my mind jumps straight to Giardia, which causes vomiting and is highly contagious. Could also mean worms, which usually doesn't cause vomiting and is very common, but is also contagious.

    Considering you tried to send him to daycare sick, saying he was fine, I think they are doing the right thing by insisting that he stay home for a little while longer. Let him get better.... it's not fair on him, or the staff, or the other kids.

    .


    Is no gluten on medical advice? If yes, don't risk your child's health. If the current centre can't cater for the child, find a centre that can.

    Is the child your son?

    ‘Completely well’ children typically don’t get put in hospital for a couple of days for observation and feeding by NG tube. Hospitals lack beds and funding to do this for no good reason.

    I think the centre is doing its due diligence by requesting clearance by medical professionals. Their communication however could warrant some improvement as could yours.

    Also think it’s a bit odd how you are referring to ‘the child’.

    Was this last week he was in hospital? For a baby to have been in hospital and to have had ng hydrarion and feeds and very specific medication like a parasite treatment i agree witj daycare. This is not a typical well or recovered child. Granted you are possibly not medical trained and that is my profression i would not be sending my baby back to care at this point or expecting the childcare to welcome them back yet. It does not sound normal that a paediatrician would be signing off for return to care as completely well and fixed days after hospitalisation. Generally babies and children can bounce back from hydrated to dehydrated again quickly when its been treated via iv or ng as its not showing that they can tolerate it themselves drinking it in. I would be wanting to keep bub home a few more days to recouperate properly before goes back to daycare

    Last week he was every few days vomiting once
    He is completely better now and pediatrician wrote a letter
    Creche know it’s important fir this child when well to go to Creche but despite him being completely well they didn’t get their act together with any paperwork they wanted which would just say exact same as what pediatrician had already written which is dIry free Child well, fit for care, not contagious
    They could have sent all paperwork knowing we d asked for it and knowing it’s important that when he’s well he goes
    They be taken 1.5 days to get paperwork to us or dr
    That will have exactly what dr already wrote on sTurday
    Coordinators who f not at Creche because she holds other jobs or is busy
    Paperwork not organised for a well child to go to Creche and taking 1.5 days is really not ok
    No one to stand in while she’s not there

    Why is it so important the child is rushed back to childcare after being in hospital?

    Surely it would be better for him to recover fully at home before going back?

    Better for him, better for the other kids and better for the carers. The carers are employed to care and educate not provide medical attention. I can certainly understand why they want assurance the child has recovered and is not contagious or requires medical from staff.

    Is the child living in an at risk situation? Is that why it's so important he attends?

    Is this even your child? Foster child? A friend or relatives? Reason I ask is because your posts read like the child may not be yours. Also you keep on contradicting yourself and it is very difficult to work out exactly what the issue is. Are you getting the info second hand? If the child is not yours I would suggest leaving it to the parents to sort out.
