Good morning everyone! I am in some desperate need of help. My 11wk old son absolutely REFUSES any type of bottle we give him, doesn't do cup feeding. This morning I completely left the house for a while which only resulted in 1/2-1 hr of him crying while my DH tried to feed him. DH called me back into the house and the moment I picked up DS he stopped crying. He refused the bottle (of course) from me and wound up nursing for longer than usual once we started. He is exclusively BF, is a VERY healthy 16 lbs (9 lbs at birth), only sleeps 2-3 hrs at most throughout the night b/c of getting up to ferociously eat (despite even cluster feeding at night) and eats regularly every 2 hrs during the day-is this normal??. I have to go back to work in a short while and he'll be at daycare. Please help! I feel like I'm at the end of my rope and I HAVE to work-no 2 ways about it and he'll be in daycare 45 minutes from where I work (the price is more than double if he's in daycare in the town where I work). What should I do? I'm so very afraid he'll starve, hate daycare (as if I don't feel guilty enough).
How to get food into him while I'm away
Is him eating every 2 hrs normal? THus his naps only run about 45-60 minutes in length.
What about only sleeping 2-3 hrs at one stretch at night?
I'd appreciate any and all advice. Thanks!
