Baby Dies After Nursery Breakfast

 

An inquest is being held in to the death of 5-month-old Thomas Egan. The baby died at the Jigsaw Nursery in Milton Keynes. The baby had an allergy against cow's milk and could only have soya based products.

When his Mother, Wendy Egan, started her son at the nursery she told staff of his allergy, and told them he was not to receive breakfast at the center. She was assured by staff that they would follow the instructions she left.

Two months after he started the nursery he was given Farley’s Sunrise Banana which contains powdered cows milk. Mrs Egon said at the inquest: “They said they would do exactly what I asked. He was my heart and soul, just a baby."

  If a Mother  
 
says that a baby is not to have breakfast at a professional day care center, then they have no right to give a child anything! Now they are trying to talk themselves out of this tragody by saying they weren't informed how serious the allergy was. Have the staff no training?

  It's our cult of mass production and no blame...  
 
The staff probably were in a routine and, at least one forgot or was not informed, and the unfortunate kid was a victim of that.
The nursery should conform to all instructions but occasionally mistakes are made and it is difficult to find an ideal solution especially in the environment of a nursery. Perhaps we need to look at a different way of handling children like this but then we would be labelling them when they need treated like ordinary children.
Two of my nephews have PKU, which means they cannot eat certain foods or it causes brain damage and/or death, and their mother could not leave them with anyone until they were old enough to refuse anything given to them. They could only eat what they brought with them. Even now I still don't know what they are allowed to eat.
What happened to this baby is a sad, sad case...
