Re: A Million Questions
You Mammas ROCK! These ideas are so helpful. Interesting about the manual pump idea for home because it would be a giant pain to bring the big pump back and forth every day. As far as picking up, I hope my dcp is ok with me nursing when I get there because we have such a long ride home.
So I thought we were good to go with the bottles but I spoke too soon. My hubby tried again over the weekend to give LO a bottle while I went out for a few hours, and he was not having it. Apparently he was quite hungry and just kept refusing, wouldn't even let it near his mouth. He chowed down when I came home. I've been letting him play with an empty bottle but I don't know what else to do. I also tried a pacifier just for the heck of it, and that's a no-go too (but that's ok with me). How in the world do we get him to take it? Now I'm afriad to leave the house and make my poor baby go hungry. He continues to have no interest in solids so I've decided to stop trying for a little bit and come back to it. We have a lot of allergy stuff to figure out anyway and I just started an elimination diet. But I'm worried about him having nothing all day long!
