I'm using Playtex nursers.
They weren't propping her bottle and leaving her alone. What they were doing was putting her in the swing and holding the bottle for her, but they told me the milk would dribble out and she didn't seem interested. 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.
