  • that is sad cause in the longer run it is gonna cost more to get her butt medicine and antibiotics from all the rashes and such she will get from not changing her...some mommies are so stupid. If I were the babysitter I would let cps know or just not babysit the child.

  • I would just change her diaper anyway. If a child is in my care, I'm gonna take care of them the way I would my own. this is ridiculous.

  • That's very sad!!! The mother is just plain wrong. The daycare provider should continue to change the baby's diaper as needed and ignore the mother's wishes. OTHERWISE the daycare provider could be found neglectful! (regardless of whether she's following the parents wishes or not)

  • IMO the mother is guilty of willful neglect, and should be reported to CPS. Honestly, if the continued cost of disposable diapers is worrying her ... she should buy cloth. If she is willing to let her baby sit in it's own filth to cut corners, is she also over diluting formula?

  • That is so sad! Maybe you can find cloth diapers for her on freecycle or at a second hand store.

  • The money they would save in no way makes up for the pain of a bad diaper rash for the baby. When my daughter was a baby I changed her the second I knew she was wet.
