    Default I Really Need Some Help Asap!!!

    Ok so today was my first day back at work. I am here from 9am-6pm! SO SAD! DD (6 months old today) is still nursing, she is also on solids. BM and then 2 hours later solids. She has done way better than expected today, but my sister in law tried to give her BM in a bottle and she wouldn't take it, then she tried to give her BM in a sippy cup and she took a couple of sips and spit it out. She just tried to give her solids and she is pushing the food away and starting to fuss. What should I tell her to do. My daughter nursed at 6am and then had cereal at 8am...she really hasn't ate since then. It's been almost 6 hours and I'm starting to FREAK OUT!!! Someone please tell me what to do!!! Thanks so much!

    could she try and spoon feed some BM? or use a medicine dropper?

    I just called my husband and told him to call her and tell her to try the medicine dropper....lets hope and pray that this works! How long does it usually take for them to adjust to being away from mommy and breast!!! Thanks for your help.

    medicine dropper is a good idea... here's some other alternative methods.

    Keep in mind, when mama is away all day, babies can do whats called reverse cycling...
