Thread: 14 month old rejecting bottles at daycare for 3 weeks

  1. #1

    Default 14 month old rejecting bottles at daycare for 3 weeks

    We went on vacation for 2 weeks and BF the entire time, no bottles. Now my 14 month old daughter has been refusing bottles at daycare ever since we came back. She goes to daycare 3 days a week, is with grandma 1 day a week, and I work from home 1 day a week (and she's with me on weekends.)

    She still nurses throughout the night. She is a reverse cycle-er I think. Any recommendations on getting her to drink breast milk during the day or is this a lost cause now?

    Normally she was having 2 bottles, each around 4 ounces. I am still sending those in but they keep getting dumped.

    Do I still pump at work? I pump at 10a and 2p.

    She nurses on a 'good sleeping night' only once over night at 2 am... but lately it is every 2 and 3 hours. We also just moved this week.

    2 AM
    6 AM
    (ME AT WORK)
    5 PM when we get home
    6 PM / 7 PM nurse at bedtime
    10 PM (sometimes)

    We tried BM in sippies, straw or spout, and bottles to no avail.

    At 14 months, it really just depends on your preferences. Many moms pump-wean at a year and just nurse when they're with their babies.

    Does your little one drink out of a cup at all?
