Second best drink
After 2 months of being at grandma's and daycare during the day - DD still won't take any EBM. We are going to keep trying (she's really good with a straw cup, but she just won't drink more than half an ounce) but in the meantime I'm worried about her being thirsty or getting dehydrated. Her poops have started getting firmer and are sometimes just one medium sized pellet.
When she gets home we nurse every hour until bedtime ( four sessions on average) and usually once overnight. In the morning we nurse twice before I leave for work. So she's getting a ton of bm with me - but she goes from 7:30-4 without drinking much of anything!
DD will drink juice (duh), she's on and off with water. When can you introduce soy? Would soy milk be a good drink? What might be good to send with her?
