It could have yes but with the other incidents it does not seem like a safe place at all.

I would think that breaking a femur would be unbearably painful... and that they would realize something was wrong way before sending their kid to daycare. Could the parents have been abusive and trying to play it off on the daycare? Yeah, I guess. But with all the other issues... I wouldn't risk it.

I doubt the baby broke his leg at home and the Mother and Daycare failed to realize it until hours later. Would you notice if you'd broken your leg? Yeah, there would be signs... like a screaming inconsolable baby.

The femur is the hardest bone in the body... I mean to break it you would have to really mean to.

When my brother broke his leg, the swelling took a few minutes, not a few hours...

Not only that, but a 5 month old's bones are still kind of soft, so it would have had to bend a LOT first before breaking...that's some SERIOUS trauma.

Oh wow..yes take them out of that place! This is why i'm so worried about leaving my kids with anyone but my parents. I would seriously never go back to that daycare..you never know what else could happen there. There is way to many other fishy things that happened there! I would not hesitate :?

:( poor baby.. I wonder what happened?? of course this is the week I actually work Monday through Friday (I usually have one day off during the week bc I work alternating weekends) so I don't even have a day to check out the other ones. I found one other I really liked but they don't take any kids under 1.

being a nurse, this is bad of me, but I wasn't sure how long it would take for the swelling to start... maybe im just trying to be optimistic but I thought maybe the parents did something in the morning then through the course of the day with playing and crawling it got worse and triggered the swelling

Crawling with a broken femur? Yeah, no. My friend's fractured his femur and wouldn't move without screaming, and that didn't even take hours to swell. A good daycare would have noticed a broken bone a lot sooner than 5 hours if it was the parents' fault.



My kids would be taken out immediately. They have a high number of incidents, and most of them pretty major.

HELL yes id get the out ASAP.... The day care im at now has never failed and needed reinspection, however they do get a mark for washing there hands in the same sink as they was the bottles out in.... Not a big deal.

If i liked the teachers and there'd been no reports of misconduct against them, I'd ask my daughter about how things are in her classroom. She's kind of a tattletale though and would have (and has, actually) told me immediately if any teachers were even just talking mean to anyone, much less grabbing their arms or faces. so no, i wouldn't pull her out if HER teacher is awesome and she's happy there, not over the actions of other teachers.

I've broken bones as a teenager and cried like a b***h immediately. Don't think a baby could crawl around on one, at all.

I wouldn't risk it. I would take them to a different day care. Start researching asap.

I would definitely take my children out and never look back.



I've broken a few bones, my ankle by far being the worst. The swelling was almost instantaneous and when I tried to bear weight on it, I fell over and actually said "wow I really did hurt myself" I find it extremely difficult to believe that a baby wouldn't be completely inconsolable if his/her femur was broken :?



When my sister was 4 she fell out of a shopping cart and broke her collarbone. The first doctor my Mom took her to said she was just "fussy" and not to worry. My mother wasn't convinced and went in for a second opinion. Thank God she did considering what the outcome was...I see no way possible that this mom dropped her son off with a broken bone and didn't realize it.
