Since you are in ohio, it is illegal for the DCP's to prop your daughter's bottle for her:

I had to do some searching, but I found it. The regulation itself states:

5101:2-12-41 Infant Feeding Requirements in Licensed Child Care Centers


Effective Date: September 1, 2007

Most Current Prior Effective Date: April 1, 2003

(A) Center policies and practices shall support parent preferences in infant feeding, including breastfeeding and shall recognize the center for disease control's determination that handling and storage of breast milk does not require the use of universal precautions and that breast milk is not considered a biohazard. Center policies and practices shall also support the introduction of solid foods as long as developmentally appropriate and not detrimental to the health of the child.

(B) Each infant shall be removed from his or her crib for all feedings. Infants shall be held or fed sitting up for bottle feedings. At no time shall a bottle be propped for an infant.

So they have to hold her and her bottle if she cannot hold it herself, period.

thats a little different i guess, but not much better. i would ask them about their re-feeding regulations though. we were only able to keep a bottle for an hour after it had been started. we could re offer it in that time, but then we had to dump it out, even if there was only an oz gone. if they have to do something similar, it wouldnt help much that shes only eating some of it.

how big are the bottles you are sending? maybe since shes not eating much at once, try sending in a bunch of like 2 oz bottles instead of fewer bigger ones (if thats what you do) that way, if she doesnt eat much, or if she plays and it dribbles out everywhere, only a little will be lost. but if she eats it and wants more, they can just warm up another bottle

So instead of taking the bottle away and putting it back in the fridge, they gave it to Fleur and let her play with it and all the milk ran out onto her clothes! She just thinks its a toy and doesn't understand that its for eating.

The daycare is not free. I receive assistance from Job and Family Services for child care, but with three kids going, I still have to pay a hefty chunk of money every month. I had to take out a student loan this semester to pay for it because there would not be any money in the budget for childcare otherwise.

There is hope if problems continue, however. My dad might very well be losing his job, and he said if that happens he will come up in the mornings to watch the kids while I go to class. Obviously I don't want my dad to lose his job, but it would be a much better situation for us, especially for little Fleur.
Is Fleur able to drink from a cup. This is an awesome sippy cup. no matter how much my DS shook it or wore it around his wrist like a bangle, it would not leak. Just enough milk come out at a time for the child to swallow.
