Mother to Press Charges against Daycare Worker Who Breastfed Her Son
A furious mom and pre-kindergarten teacher at the Carrboro Early School is seeking ways to file criminal charges against another woman who breastfed her three-month-old baby against her advice at the school's daycare center.
Kaycee Oxendine said she visited the daycare center after a teacher at the nursery informed her that her baby was constipated. Oxendine reported another woman whom she did not know stepped forward and offered to breastfeed the baby to help with its constipation.
"I said, 'Oh, that's not pleasant. That's kind of nasty. We don't do things like that. I don't know you, and even if I did, no,'" Oxendine reported. "But it makes me sick to my stomach" to learn that the stranger still went ahead to breastfeed the baby despite two refusals from its mother never to do that.
Baby rushed to hospital emergency room
A teacher in the nursery had reported the offending nurse to Oxendine and when surveillance video in the daycare center was reviewed, it showed the stranger breastfeeding Oxendine's baby for some time. The mother flew into a rage and threw tantrums.
But worse than that, the baby became sick and had to be rushed to UNC Hospital when it started to throw up. The baby was born premature and may have even needed surgery. A series of tests was run on him at the emergency room and doctors finally concluded that the baby is lactose intolerant, meaning it can't take any milk or dairy products, ABC 11 reports.
Oxendine is furious and alleges that a "criminal act was committed against" her son because the offending nurse put something it shouldn't have or able to digest in its body. She said she is not angry at the authorities of the school or other staffs but wants the offending woman charged because "I want to make sure she's never able to work with kids again."
Offending nurse sacked, may be called up to face charges
Daron Council, the director of the daycare, would not reveal the name of the errant woman but announced that she has been fired from the center. He added that the woman was actually licensed and worked at the Orange-Chatham Early School with over 10 years experience in taking care of kids in daycare centers.
He added that such incident had never occurred at the daycare facility before and that he'd reported the event to the state Department of Health and Human Services (DHHR), WRAL reported. He also said he informed the parents of other kids at the center to examine their children to ensure there was nothing done to them by the errant nurse on that same day.
Although no charges have been filed against the woman, the police in Carrboro said they are looking into the matter to determine if misdemeanor child abuse charges could be brought against her.
