One mother said she had trouble waking her 8-month-old son between bites at dinner.

"Then after he'd eat, he'd go to sleep, say 6 o'clock, and wouldn't wake up until 6 the next morning, Leslee Meade told KXII.

She said she considered taking her child to the hospital but then received the call from DHS about the investigation.

Detective Jeff Wilson told KXII that, "Right now we have seven victims."

Employees claim they were directed to use the medicine on the children by the center's owner Beverly Sue Stair, Wilson said. 

"Their (Child Welfare Department) findings were a bottle of Benadryl in the nursery in an unmarked bottle," Meade said. 

Wilson said the case will be turned over to the District Attorney's Office. Stair could face felony child abuse charges.
