I posted previously that my 3mo dd wouldn't take a bottle. Well, I have been back at work for a week now, and she *still* won't take a bottle. The first day she cried a lot, but the other days she was just cranky and wouldn't take it. She seems to prefer to wait for me for the 5 hour stretch. But she's not reverse cycling either, which makes me worried that she's not eating enough, even though she's not complaining.
Her current schedule has been:
7:15 am nurse one side and part of other, then I go to work
12:30 -1:30 nurse on both sides and comfort suck
4:00 pm nurse on one side
6-6:30 pm nurse on one side
8-8:30 pm nurse on one side
9:00 pm down for the night and sleep through till 7am
So she's only getting 5 feedings per day instead of the usual 7 that she was getting before I went back to work. I thought she would wake in the night, but so far she only woke 1 time on 1 day, so she doesn't seem to be reverse cycling. I was wondering if I should wake her up in the night to nurse or trust that if she needs it she will wake up?
Maybe I should give it more time to see what she's going to do? It's only been a week. Maybe she'll still decide to try the bottle, or start reverse cycling?
