Hello- My son is 4.5 months old and has been going to the same daycare since he was 12 weeks. What is a daycare for an infant really supposed to be like? I only have experience with this one daycare so I don't know if what I am experiencing is the norm.
I went to visit him around lunch today and there were a total of 3 babies in the infant room. One was being fed a bottle, the other was on the ground fussing and mine was lying in the crib crying while the other provider was standing over him eating her lunch.
When I puck him up after work all the kids are sitting on the floor with the care taker not playing with any toys or listening to music just waiting for their parents to pick them up. One day when I went to pick my son up they had him laying on a boppy pillow facing a toy that was on a wall with a mirror on it while the care taker was cleaning up and folding the cribs back up.
Is this the norm or what is it really supposed to be like? Please help!
