Mother Says Daycare Fed Her Infant Son Another Woman’s Breast Milk

FENTON, Mo. -- A mother in Missouri has taken her child out of daycare after what she feels was a risky mix-up with her baby.

That mother said it is already hard enough trusting someone with your newborn child as it is, but she was enraged when she went to pick up her son and saw him being fed another woman’s breast milk.

“The bottle was not a bottle I provided. It was a different brand,” said Jessi Werkmeister.

Jessi Werkmeister said the person holding and feeding her son at WeeCare Childcare in Fenton thought he was another baby.

“I said, 'What are you feeding him?' They responded with, 'I can assure you it’s not breast milk.'” Werkmeister said. “I said, 'What is it? He’s a preemie.'”

Werkmeister said her son was born four weeks early, so she was sending him with a special formula.

She soon found it was not his special formula he was drinking but milk another mother had pumped.

She said she had to find the mother on Facebook to ask her a few questions.

“She reassured me it was breast milk,” Werkmeister said. “She said, 'What is my son getting if your son’s getting my breast milk?'”

WeeCare Childcare issued the following statement:

“We would like to apologize to the parents of all parties involved in this isolated incident. We are sure that this issue has been addressed and resolved. We love all our children and families that God has placed in our hands. We look forward to serving our community, and we will continue to protect our credibility.”

Josh Arthur, assistant professor of pediatrics, said there are potential risks with milk mix-ups in daycare.

“The thing that you worry about is the transmission of infectious disease,” Arthur said. “Breast milk is better in almost every way then formula, but the one thing is it could transmit medical conditions that the mother has.”

“Immediately, you want to know if they drink, smoke, are they healthy?” Werkmeister said. “That is something that the daycare should’ve had a protocol to address. I didn’t get a phone call. I didn’t get a follow-up.”

Werkmeister said her baby was not only drinking from the wrong bottle but he also had on the wrong diapers too.

She pointed out that her son’s bottles are labeled and he has a distinctive red birthmark in between his eyes.

“It makes me wonder if you can’t give a child the right bottle, what other things are going on in the daycare?" Werkmeister said.

According to reports from the Center for Disease Control, the chances for diseases to be spread by breast milk are low, but both parents should be notified in the case that the wrong child drinks the wrong milk.

    Well I see I must have triggered some baby boomer snowflake to have my comments deleted.

    Typical for this site, offend a boomer and they get all butthurt

        It is 948am and with one job I made more than some people do in a week this morning.

        Now that the PP measure contest is over maybe you could try harder

        So what? Lots of people make more than me, and I make more than lots of people. I still say you’re full of sh.it but even you’re telling the truth you’re still a cuck. Money can’t change that.

      “Triggered,” “baby boomer,” “snowflake.” So, I don’t think that anyone’s “triggered” by your trolling, at all. If your comments have been deleted – WELCOME TO THE CLUB. Baby Boomer? And, that’s some sort of insult, is it? LMAO!!!! Last I knew, “snowflake,” had been used by conservatives and centered individuals to describe the leftist wingnuts that whined about their fragile feelings. Very intriguing how some people can’t come up with their own words. Oh, I know it must be hard having a thriving business that one has time to troll during, all the time. Oh, “on (your) way” to another job means that you actually texted your diatribe while driving, or did you pull over like a responsible grownup? BUFFOON………….not to be confused with “baboon.”

      I am fairly certain that this isn’t her first choice.

      Maybe you can pay her bills so she can stay at home and care for her child.

      Or maybe we as a nation can offer paid family leave like every other major country.

        You’re “fairly certain” about this woman’s motives and decisions, are you? My, my, my………..it must be so satisfying to be a know-it-all millennial making gazillions with their own business. LOLOLOL

        Maybe don’t have kids then? Pop out a kid and put it right into daycare sounds like really crappy “parenting” to me.

      Never said I made millions.

      But I would be fine with paying taxes if we actually used the money for programs that benefits the people.

      Instead we have an invading.military and our tax money goes into protection of the assets of halliburton and Exxon

      • PEATERMOSS

        No, I’m pretty sure you rose to the PP size challenge and said you made more in one morning than most people make all week, so that implies you make millions. Make sure you take your pet tiger out for a walk this afternoon, and check the inspection sticker on your Lamborghini.

        I know what your “business” is, at last!!!!! You manufacture tin foil hats, right? And, you don’t vaccinate, either. Right? And, you eat soy instead of animal, right? Bwaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha………….you’ve gone from a buffoon to all-out and straight-up entertainment. LOLOLOLOLOLOL Omigosh……
