I love Little Lambs and wouldn't even consider any other daycare. Maybe the review is from a long time ago or when they first opened. Also, it should be noted that Mary and ALL of her staff are state certified and always doing further education. Laws are always changing and I understand as a breastfeeding mother myself that it is SO frustrating to supply milk. I ran out too because STATE LAW now says that you cannot reheat breastmilk. You may only heat it once and it may not be reused. So it should have been the mothers job to ask for her extra unused milk back. It's hard for everyone. Mary is always honest and understanding and her staff is carefully selected and also trustworthy. The daily sheets are always filled out and accurate. I love all the people I've come into contact with. If there was ever ANY quarrel I've stated it and the problem was taken care of.

My daughter (about 3 months old) was only here for 2 weeks before we had a problem. Mary just doesn't seem to know how to communicate effectively with parents. She asked me to supply larger bottles, which I was happy to do if we needed to. The next morning I told the person in the baby room that I hadn't pumped extra the previous day since I didn't know they were requesting more, but said I would add another pumping session to provide more if I needed to in the future. I also questioned why we needed more though, since most days they weren ' t even giving my daughter all 3 bottles I provided (which to me signaled she was satisfied with only the 2). She then gave my husband a sheet that afternoon about how much formula a baby needs, even though my baby is on breast milk. She didn't seem to be at all knowledgeable about breastfeeding or breast milk and how it differed from formula and had no interest in receiving information about it from me. (Breastfed babies generally do smaller feedings but eat more frequently compared to formula babies and breastfed babies only take about 1-1.25 oz of milk per hour from 1 month on.) She also requested that I have my daughter's pediatrician confirm her weight was ok, which again I was happy to comply with if it would help diffuse the situation. But even though I said I would get more milk if I needed to and said I had scheduled a weight check with her pediatrician to show she was perfectly healthy, she just kept pushing harder and harder which made me uncomfortable. To me, the issue should have been dropped once I said I would get more milk if needed and that I had an appointment with her pediatrician. I just ask ed a few questions trying to understand the situation and Mary escalated the situation beyond repair. It just wasn't making sense to me that they were saying my daughter was still hungry but yet they were sending home a full bottle with my husband most days and constantly telling how sweet and happy she was. So, best case Mary was simply ignorant of the differences in breast milk and formula and wanted larger bottles because that is what she is used to seeing and just has no interest in learning the difference. Worst case, she genuinely thought my daughter was still hungry but chose not to even give her all of the milk I had provided. The way things were handled was completely unprofessional and out of line in my opinion. I think the real issue here is communication. This situation just escalated far too quickly. It all could have been avoided if things were handled better, because I really don't think the situation needed to escalate the way it did. I hate that this didn't work out for us, but when you trust someone to care for your child, there really needs to be open, two-way communication for it to work. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be possible here.

*Note, I previously gave a 2 star rating on their Facebook page along with this exact review. However, they have since disabled the reviews on their page so that all previous reviews are hidden. That makes me a bit uncomfortable that they would choose to hide all reviews just to hide one customer's bad experience so that other parents and potential clients will not see it. I would like any parents considering their facility to be able to see my experience and make their own decision.
