Re: Stressful bedtime routine with bottle of expressed BM by
If the bottle is a source of stress, ditch it. What does your DH think about the situation? Does he enjoy giving a bottle? It sounds like it's not a particularly fun enterprise!
Often we go into parenthood with big plans about what we're going to do. We're never going to use tv as a babysitter. We're never going to be the parents with the screaming kid at the restaurant. We're going to have our baby potty trained by age 2. We're going to use a nightly bottle. And then our kids are born and they are their own unique little people right from the get-go, and sometimes that means our plans get completely upended!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
