Description of service

Daily care of my infants. Each baby had their own bed. They would feed them the meals that were needed. breakfast, lunch and dinner. All formula and jar foods were included in the cost. But they only provided one kind of formula, so if your baby was like ours and needed soy or a special formula you had to bring in your own. And it had to be powder as they were not allowed to mix any other kind of formula. which i thought was silly. Diaper and wipes were NOT included and those were to be brought in weekly.

Review of Service

Overall i think the service we recieved was acceptable. One of our babies needed to have special excercises for her neck and i do not think those were given to her. The babies were always held while they were being given a bottle, they never propped bottles in their mouths. The ladies in their room were always very in depth of their days.


Leaving an infant with anyone can be hard. If at all possible i think it is wise to stay home with them. i ended up taking a weekend job so i could stay home with the babies mostly because of the cost monthly and it just made me nervous leaving my baby with stangers even though they cared for them well. But i know this is not an option for everyone, so of course interview the teachers that will be caring for your baby and compare prices and see what all the weekly price includes. some places include formula AND diapers and some just one or the other.
