Re: Not taking bottle at daycare
Lots of babies will refuse taking a bottle at daycare at some point. You could try asking your caregiver to vary the ways that she's offering the bottle - positioning, temperature, etc. Or, maybe baby is telling her that she's full, and caregiver isn't recognizing those signals.
Babies also sometimes refuse the bottle when the flow is too fast or too slow for their liking. Could you try experimenting with different kinds of bottle nipples.
The caregiver could also intorduce a sippy cup instead of a bottle, some babies prefer that. It often works better if you start the sippy cup with the valve removed, so that baby understands that there is something in there. Once baby figures it out, you can put the valve back in.
There are other ways to feed a baby, too. Medicine droppers, medicine cups, spoons, small glasses (shot glass size), or even just experiment with different kinds of bottle nipples.
I don't think that replacing a nursing session with a bottle feeding session will necessarily solve this problem.
