I would make the complaint more about them not clearly informing you of their policies when you started, and less about the actual milk, since that’s a complaint ANY mother would have, and less personal if this is her trying to spite you.

Is there a reason she would want to spite you? Is there a history there?

I’d rage, lol. And if there’s someone higher up than the supervisor, go to him or her.

oooo, daycares can be really awesome or really bad!  I think probably everyone has a story of either their own personal experience while in day care or their child’s horrible experience!

I’m so sorry that they’re totally inconsiderate – how hard would calling really be!  I definitely think that you should address it, and possibly look for other options in the area?

-Good Luck!

Ugh, awful! I’d call and explain that you just started bringing your precious baby to their child care, which you selected thoughtfully. You were unaware of a policy about discarding milk every day and were confused and concerned to drop off your daughter and notice the lack of milk. Because you were unaware of this policy you were not prepared with the proper amount of milk for your child today, and it’s unacceptable that she is hungry throughout the day. You brought her there for thoughtful care and are unable to feed her during the day or stop by with more milk.

There’s nothing they can do about it now, but I still think you should express your distaste for the situation and that is put you in a bad position.

Did you know the policy?  I can totally see how one could space and forget but if you knew that they dump and the end of the day then yes, you should have taken it with you. 


It is their right to stand behind a policy if it is clearly stated.  Regardless if it was breast milk or a tire rotation.  As a consumer it’s our right to either follow policy or take our business elsewhere.

Definitely complain!!! That is not right that they didn’t tell you and dumped it without you knowing.

Was it dated and labeled? I can’t believe that they wouldn’t allow you to keep enough there for her overnight if it was labeled and dated.

That really stinks! They don’t call it liquid gold for nothing! They should have been much more aware before dumping it.

Whoa.  Why did you continue with the orientation if the supervisor was such a…witch?  ESPECIALLY after them throwing out all of your breast milk, I’d scoop my child up and give them the finger as I’m walking out the door.  (Well, probably not as dramatic, but I would find a new daycare.)

Is there any possible way for you to find another place to take your little one?  This woman sounds like a monster.  If she didn’t have the patience to review everything she went over in orientation for the first 15 minutes, how is she going to handle kids?!

Oooooo  This boils my blood!!!

@LindsayMaree:  I completely agree.  Is it possible to find a new daycare?

@LindsayMaree: I agree with you too! I think OP should think about finding a different daycare. That’s completely awful!

Did you sign a parent handbook? I work in a daycare, and we give parents a copy of our policies and have them sign saying they’ve received it.
But, I don’t know what state you’re in… but I’ve never heard of a daycare throwing out breastmilk after one day in the fridge. That is ridiculous. Do they not have a freezer to keep it in? In my class, I encourage breastfeeding mothers to keep extra in our freezer, in addition to what they bring daily, to cover all bases just in case their child gets super hungry one day or they’re late to pick them up or anything like that.
