HI Mommies -I have been driving myself crazy the last 6 weeks! My daughter started daycare on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 and on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 I went to pick my daughter up from daycare and she was sleeping. She said when she returned from lunch my daugther woke-up and was crying uncontrollably. She tried to fed her, change her diaper, rock her and she wouldnt stop crying. She said she had to put her down and let her cry so she could fed and change the other children because she woke them up from nap crying... She said she finally fell back to sleep and she is still sleeping when I arrived (this was 4:45pm).

The daycare never called me.

I said o no. I wonder if she missed mommy. I picked her up from her crib and she screamed her head off like I was killing her. Usually I can calm her in a few seconds once she notices its mommy... Nope. I tried to fed her, change her diaper (because the teacher said she hadnt changed it since earlier this afternoon and she tried feeding her but she refused food)... Nothing worked. I put her in a car seat and she eventually calmed down. The teacher and I talked about what could be wrong, I mentioned maybe sick since she just started daycare with the germs and left. When she got home I took her out of her car seat and she screamed her head off. She cried until she fell asleep. When she woke up from her nap I moved her and she screamed. I attempted to give her pain med and finally realized she wasnt moving her arm and if you touched it or moved her that's when she would scream.

Long story short, we took her to the ER and her arm was broken! Spiral fracture. This is where I need advice... My husband went to the daycare the next day and asked what happened they told him my daughter cried after lunch but they had no idea her arm was broken. We went to the orthopedic who insisted on calling DSS - they said this is a rare break from someone severely twisting her arm. The police came to our house and questioned us and the state that governs daycares questioned us. Fastforward... The daycare forgot all this and told the detective that nothing happened and she was perfect that day! I am soooooo upset. My daughter had to wear a cast for 4 weeks and now all of a sudden no one knows what happened and she never cried! I am sick. What should I do! I contacted a lawyer but they said if the daycare says it didnt happen there there's nothing they can do. I need some advice! How could they hurt my baby like that and get away with it!
