Ok here goes my spill... Last week the DCW gave my lo oatmeal with bananas twice. She had given it to her before. Here's the kick. I had NO idea until she told me. I had noticed one day her poop was much more solid so I thought something was up and then she told me. Well, I didn't know how to react so I just said I wish you would have asked me. My lo is five months on Wed. and I am trying to exclusively breastfeed for six right? So I told her that as well. Then she showed me how she was eating the oatmeal. She was opening her mouth and the DCW said she had even been grabbing for the bowl. So I was of course in shock at first like oh no I have to go and by stuff now not ready at all. Then when I got home I got furious and printed off information from the American Academy of Pediatrics and their recommendations. So I complained the next day at work and she isn't going to do it anymore but she said she had been crying and it helped her calm down. I tried to explain that she normally only cries when she is sleepy and rubs her eyes and told them how I handle it and call if they needed me. So then I go in today and there is a sub who has worked there a long time. The mother of the assistant director I think. Anyway she started talking about solid and how they need them and how my lo drinks the whole bottle and then keeps sucking. I feed her about 7 or 8 times a day and send about 5 or 6 oz. which I just recently increased from 4 or 5 oz. She eats about every 3 hours and 2 at night before bed. My question is.. Am I doing the right thing? Am I going to have to change day cares? I like the lady and she thought she was just doing what she always does which still seems crazy to me. Since now I will never get the chance back to see her have her first feeding of solids. Anyway, advice, tips, encouragement. All will be great!
