Grandparents puting toddler to bed-how much milk??
My lo is 17 mths old and her grandparents will be putting her to bed next Sat for the first time ever. We have a wedding to go to and won't be here, she has never been put to bed by anyone but us. We have written down the whole bedtime routine but the nursing is a problem. She has never taken breastmilk from anything but me until recently when she will drink a bit from her sippy cup, usually just a few sips. It holds 8 oz, will that be enough for her at bedtime? She usually nurses for 15min then and is still nursing 4-5 times per day for 10-15 min each time. I very rarely pump so it has taken a good bit of work to get that much milk as I only get about an ounce or so when I pump. Should Grandma give it to her where I nurse her or will that just make her mad?
