They Thought Their Infant Was Safe At Daycare Then They See A Disturbing Pic of Her Face Down In The Crib!

One of the hardest parts about being a parent to a young newborn child is having to leave them with a babysitter or at daycare.  For most people who work, this eventual reality comes after their maternity leave is over and their baby is just weeks old. While many people have a family member or even a close trusted friend watch their child, not everyone has this option available.  

Childcare is not cheap and people pay top dollar to ensure their kids are being kept safe and watched over by professionals.  Parents go to great lengths to find the best day care centers in their area, often researching and visiting them well in advance so they feel comfortable leaving their kids when the time comes.  However, even the most highly regarded places can turn out to be skipping corners and doing things wrong, which is never okay when infants and children are affected.

For Deirdre Engle and her husband Jonathan, every parent’s worst nightmare came true when they received a call from the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) back in 2018.  The couple were told by DCF that their 6 month old daughter Elora had been put down to sleep in a sleep sack, face down, with the sack pulled very tight around her, and it was secured with an elastic hair band.  There were photos of the poor child and wanting to see evidence, they headed straight to DCF to view them.

When Deirdre saw the picture of Elora her heart sank.  Her daughter looked so small and was clearly not comfortable in the sleep sack and position she had been put in.  After confirming the baby in the photo was Elora her mind immediately started racing and all of the horrible possibilities flashed through her head.  She had been leaving her daughter at the day care since she was just 5 weeks old and had grown to trust the caretakers, but now all that went out the window.

According to local new reports, Deirdre was not the only parent who received a call from DCF about the daycare center putting infants in sleep sacks face down, several others were notified as well.  She immediately pulled her baby out of the day care and raised the alarm when she spoke to the local news about the incident. 

While sleep sacks are considered safer than blankets, this is only when they are used correctly.  What the day care provider did, using a hair tie to secure it in the back and laying the infant face down on their belly, was just plain wrong.  Furthermore, swaddling is not allowed at day care centers. Only parents can swaddle their child at home because babies risk rolling over on their tummies and they should always be placed on their back when wrapped up like that.  For more information on how to properly use a sleep sack to swaddle a baby please refer to the video and be sure to always watch them close.

Doctors Notice Something Strange Growing In THIS Infant’s Tummy. Then Realize It’s Growing In Her Twin Too!

Having a child is probably the most exciting and life altering moment of your life. Especially your first child, not knowing what to expect, everything is brand new and there is pretty much no instruction manual that covers your new life that is about to unfold before you! This whole new world of responsibility can at times become daunting and exhausting.

Now imagine instead of just one baby you are having twins! When having twins any worrying you had about one baby is now multiplied by two! From making sure both babies are fine inside the womb, to having a normal and safe birth, and finally preparations of their rooms and the baby proof house for two new babes!

The biggest fear most new parents face is worrying about the health of their new baby and hopefully no problems or health complications. Sadly for many parents, things don’t run as smooth as planned. There are so many things that could potentially go wrong during a pregnancy and if you aren’t being vigilant these issues can sneak right up on you.

That brings us to today’s story featuring Elisa and Michael Dunn, a couple who were expecting their first child. They were first stunned to find out they weren’t just bringing one baby into the world, they were having twin baby girls! They celebrated the news although they knew it would be double the work, but they still felt blessed and thankful.

On July 4th, Independence Day in the USA, twin baby girls Isabella and Madeline were born. Because they were born on July 4th they nicknamed the two cuties their sweet little ‘firecrackers’. As the new family settled in with their twin baby firecrackers everything seemed to be going great.

That is until one somber day in September when the twins had a routine check-up with their doctor. During the exam the doctor immediately noticed that Madeline’s stomach seemed to be bulging and when he pressed on it something didn’t feel right! The doctor took an ultrasound image, viewed it, and a visible growth was clearly showing. The doctor had to give the Dunn family some pretty scary news…

From what he saw on the ultrasound it looked as if baby Madeline may have some type of tumor or cancer! He sent them to a specialist to get her belly further checked out. They took blood work, got samples, did all the testing that was necessary. Then came the terrifying diagnosis. The doctor told the Dunns their sweet baby girl had a rare type of cancer called a Stage 4s Neuroblastoma. If this news wasn’t bad enough, the specialist suspected her twin sister Isabella might have something similar and asked her parents if he could examine her as well.

That’s when the double dose of terrible news came crashing down on the Dunns. Both of their daughters had soft balled sized Stage 4s Neuroblastomas growing off of their adrenal glands. The doctors explained to them that it is very rare for twins to both have the same cancer at the same time. But in this particular case they suspected that the initial cancer cells started multiplying and duplicating inside Madeline in the womb and were passed on to her sister Isabella.

They reasoned that because they were identical twins they shared certain blood vessels and arteries while they were still in the womb. These vessels would act as pathways for the cancer cells to travel from one baby to the other. Because the cancer began months before they were born and continued growing from their kidneys and then into their livers a successful surgery would not be possible.

Both girl’s livers were now filled with tumors and their fate was now uncertain. The doctors were unsure if surgery would be beneficial and they didn’t think either twin would survive it. So they decided on the next best thing Chemotherapy.

In general Chemotherapy can have serious side effects for a grown adult or an older child; but the side effects for babies this young would be much worse. Their parents were so scared and horrified, but they opted for the chemotherapy, because not doing anything was just not an option!

Both girls started chemotherapy separately during the first round. They both experienced horrible side effects and were suffering through the treatment. After the second round of chemo, the girls were brought back together and somehow just being near each other lessened the side effects.

They both went through 4 arduous, long and painful chemotherapy sessions, then two weeks before Christmas the twins had an MRI taken to see how they had responded to the treatment. A miracle had occurred, Isabella and Madeline’s cancer were both completely in remission and their were no signs of cancer in their systems!

Luckily their rare cancer stayed in remission and never came back! The girls still get check-ups every 6 months just to make sure everything is still in remission. The twins are now healthy and growing up just like any other normal kids would. They had no long term side effects from the cancer or the chemotherapy. Thank god this story had an amazing and beautifully happy ending for these two adorable baby ‘firecrackers’.

Having a baby is probably the most life changing event in a person’s life. You go from just taking care of yourself all day everyday, to now taking care of a new little human at all times. Trying to juggle everything in life such a job, going on a date with your husband or wife, a nice hike in the woods, or seeing your friends, all becoming harder and harder to accomplish because of your new huge responsibility.

At times it can become very overwhelming and parents can easily become exhausted, run down and burned out. This is where grandparents, a nanny, a baby sitter or daycare come into play. This gives parents a well deserved breather and a time to rest and recover from the hardest job in the world parenthood! Parents will spend exorbitant amounts of money on nannys, babysitters and daycare so they expect that the people caring for their children will do a wonderful and amazing job.

This isn’t always the case which leaves many parents, to stress out and be anxious while their baby is under the care of another individual! This brings us to today’s story which took place in April of last year. A couple from Kansas sent their 6-month old baby Elora off to daycare. They were paying a good amount of money and the place had a reputation for being great and had all good reviews.

One morning a call came in from the Kansas Department for Children and Families. This department makes sure that children are not being neglected and treated properly. During this surprise phone call they were told that the department received a very alarming picture of their innocent little baby Elora.

The representive from Kansas Department for Children and Families explained to them that they received a very unnerving picture of baby Elora wearing a sleep mask, she was turned face down and wrapped way too tight in something that resembled a sack or bag.

At first Elora’s parents were just completely stunned and couldn’t even fathom that this could be their infant. This had to be some kind of mistake! How could this be true? Was it really their sweet baby girl Elora? After the initial surprise wore off they realized it was indeed their daughter!

Her parents obviously fearing the worst went into full panic mode, because Elora had been attending this place since she was only 5-weeks old! Luckily for them, a good samaritan employee who worked at the place realized what horrible things were taking place!

They snapped pictures and sent them out to the proper authorities! Elora wasn’t the only baby being mistreated, there were also other babies being horribly treated at this daycare. Mom got on social media and told everyone about her story and experience to help raise awareness about keeping your children safe!

This is a good lesson to parents everywhere, that no matter what, if it’s a nanny, babysitter or a daycare they must always remain vigilant and trust their gut. If something seems off there is a good chance it is! Always follow your instincts and keep your children safe!

She Took Their Baby Through The Bra Aisle. What The Little Guy Does Made Me Spit Out My Drink!

Devin is a little toddler out shopping with his parents.  Some objects grabbed his attention, and he was relentless in his interest and tactile exploration.  You might think that it was the stuffed animal aisle, or some toy trucks…but you would be wrong.

He was behaving very nicely as his parents went through the store, binky in mouth, when suddenly to his parents amazement and great amusement, he became entranced with the bra section!  They were hanging down at his level, and many of them were of the padded variety.

His enthusiasm for these squishy objects, in the following footage, is hilarious.  Who knew that this male fixation could start at such a young age?!  Thankfully his parents don’t scold him, and just let him go through the display, delighted by his cuteness and curiosity.

This is so funny! Enjoy!
