*update* My EBF 3 month old was given rice cereal without my permission today!!
3oz at 10, 3oz at 1 and "a scoop of rice cereal with moms milk at 2:30"
(First I they fed him all wrong times and he had 2 bottles left over.) then I thought...
WHAT?!?! I have never brought rice cereal in for him he has to this day only had breastmilk, he is only 3 months old and doctor says no solids till 6 months!! They never discussed this with me or called and asked if they could try it. I called my mom and was freaking out but I got the idea that she thinks I'm over reacting but my god I'm working my butt off to make sure he's EBF. This is partially a vent but partially a question of am I over reacting? What would you do?
Okay so update:
Teacher is not in today so I talked to the director. She called the teacher to see exactly what was given. Apparently she was feeding all the kids (1month older than him and up) cereal at lunch and he "seemed hungry and like he wanted to try it" so she took a little cereal and mixed it with a little of my milk and fed him with a spoon a baby spoonful....I explained the reasons of why he can't and that our pediatrian doesn't recommend till 6 months and that it bothers me that she didn't ask first and she just replied "well you have to understand she is an older lady and does things in older style and didn't mean to upset you or anything but just since it was a little rice and thats easiest on their stomach that she didn't think it would be a problem" Now the infant teacher is actually the owner/directors mom so she's not going to do anything as far as a write up for mon or anything like a corporate daycare would so we will be giving our notice and leaving the daycare. I made very much a point that he is NOT to be given anything other then breastmilk. I don't get how they say he's so hungry all the time yet comes home with extra bottles. Ugh VENT lol thank you ladies!
