That is extremely unprofessional. If you have a business- especially dealing with infants --- you need to make your business accessible for parents........Better off leaving.

it's YOUR job to go inside and retrieve your child - not your daughters. Maybe if you took the time to walk in there you would be more informed.

get the official "list" of requirements

You can call your inspector and request the actual 'requirements' that he/she will be looking for. They have to give it to you. Do that - then you will be 100% ready == good luck!
