Re: First day at daycare
Awww that makes me sad, too. I'm sorry, mama.
How do you feel about talking to the provider(s) about comforting him when he's crying, instead of leaving him sitting on the floor?
And how do you feel about trying alternate feeding methods? There are other ways to get milk into a baby. Things like sippy cups with the valve removed, medicine cups, medicine droppers, shot glasses, measuring spoons, periodontal syringes.
Perhaps you could ask the providers to feed baby at a set time, say 90min or 2hrs, after you've dropped him off, something that's similar to when he'd normally nurse if you were there? That way, they'd be offering the bottle before he got really really upset and hungry.
