Re: How do you distribute EBM to caregiver for the day?
Our daycare provider required us to prepare all bottles ahead, label them and place them in our assigned location in the refrigerator. All EBM was given an extra label to ensure it was handled properly. The empty bottles were put into our bag, which hung on our assigned hook so we could take them home and wash them. If baby didn't eat a bottle we had to take it home, so the fridge was empty every day at closing.
I am not sure why your daycare provider would give you a hard time about doing all the washing and prepping yourself. If anything it is saving her a step. And if you prep the bottles exactly as you want them then there is not going to be an accident or a spill, because the top is never coming off the bottle. I would not feel comfortable with my daycare provider pouring my milk for me, nor would I feel comfortable sending in extra.
