Today is my first day back at work. I have a 3 month old and he doesn't really know how to bottle feed yet.(I know I waited until the last possible moment!) My mom is now watching him during the day. She told me he fights the bottle. He ate an ounce at one feeding session and then another 1.5 ounces at another. She said he was sucking on it finally.
She seems to think that if I nurse him when I get home from work he will forget all of the bottle feeding he has learned to do with her today. Should I pump and bottle feed him, or should I just nurse him? Will he get more confused and all the of progress she has made will be lost?
I really don't want to bottle feed him. I feel like he is going to need that mommy love and attention when I get home. But at the same time, I don't want to make it harder on my mom tomorrow.
