Mom Finds 25 Bite Marks On Baby After She Picked Her Up From Daycare
Nov 23rd, 2021
Daycare centers are your child’s’ second home. As soon as you drop your baby off at daycare, you are expecting him or her to get the best treatment from the staff. You know that they have enough people to watch each child, to make sure that they are safe.
But when Alice Bryant arrived home with her daughter after picking her up from daycare, the Creative Beginnings Preschool in Tucson Arizona, she knew that something went wrong. She immediately reported her daughter’s nursery to the police and the Department of Health for negligence. This was after she found at least 25 bite marks all over her 15-month-old’s body.
While this mom was changing her daughter’s clothes at home, she was shocked to see dozens of bite marks covering her tiny back. This was not something that she would let go. She is aware that accidents happen at daycare. But it was too much for her to bear knowing that her baby, Rosalynn, had to go through that torture and nobody did anything about it.
As a mother, you would do anything to keep your child away from harm. You would protect your baby from anything, even from insects. And to see her daughter like this was heartbreaking for her. She said, “It’s stomach-churning. It feels both angry and sad at the same time.
At first, I was like “are those really bite marks. ” And then my brain kind of stopped thinking and I started crying. ‘The fact they [the nursery] didn’t even notify me when I picked her up is astounding. ”
So she did not waste any time. She reported the daycare to the police and the Department of Health. She explained, “I know that a child getting bitten that many times would be crying and very upset. You always want to protect your children and I feel like that didn’t happen. I feel like I left her with someone that didn’t look out for her at all.”
The officers at the local police department immediately looked into the case. They believe that the bite marks were caused by another child. So at the time of the report, no arrests have been made. Arizona’s Department of Health, on the other hand, said that they could not give any information regarding the pending investigations.
The daycare center declined to make any statement regarding the matter. But they told the local television channel, KOLD News 13, that Alice’s claims were unsubstantial.
Alice will not this go that easily. She said, “The fact that nobody intervened in how many minutes, maybe they were left alone, maybe they disregarded the cries, I don’t know, but it takes some time to do that kind of biting and my daughter would have been very upset.”
Teething infants are finding relief from biting objects. But as a parent, if you know that your child is a biter and you are leaving them at daycare where they can harm other children, teach them not to bite. Start the discipline at home. If they do bite, say “No” or “No Bite.” Do it calmly or intervene every time they try to bite.
Nobody wants their kids to hurt another kid. But things like this happen. However, it could have been avoided if the staff were observant enough to what the kids who are under their care are doing.
