Hey ladies! I need your opinions! My son started daycare a few weeks ago. A few days before he started, I went to the daycare to drop stuff off & talk to his teachers. I felt their attitude on germs was a little LAX, when I asked them how often they cleaned the hanging toys in the activity gym, the response I got was the toys can't reach the babies mouths! At that point, my work was already set up & I brought him there. Now after 7 days at daycare, he's already had a pretty wicked cold & I've missed work bc I got the same cold. I know that babies will get sick in daycare but do you think a more vigilant staff would help prevent the spread of germs? There's another daycare option that's way more expensive but they seemed more concerned with germs...I'm jw if it's worth the move. Thanks for the insight!
Re: daycare cooties!
Coxsackie went around in LO's room and thank goodness she did not get it. The staff thoroughly disinfected all the toys and room to reduce the spread to the little ones (they have crawlers in the room, up to 12 mo). I constantly see them cleaning.
You should find a daycare that meets your needs and makes you comfortable to leave your child.
