Good morning ladies.... I am babysitting a 6month old baby girl for a friend of mine. I have had 3 babies, and thought this would be a breeze. LOL, I was wrong. I nursed all 3 of our and never gave a bottle so I don't have a clue what to do. Do I give her food instead of another bottle? She keeps crying and I went through all of the steps, changed her, gave her a bottle, 6oz, sang to her, and of course all the while I was holding her. She just would squirm and cry... Birped her, she would still cry. So I laid her in her playpen, thinking my arms were making her more fussy, she still rolled around and cried. So I made her another bottle, 4oz this time. She took it, and went right to sleep in her playpen. Does this mean she only goes to sleep with a bottle? Is it bad to do that? I will for sure talk to her Mom when she picks her up today, but I just don't want to start something that can become a bad habit. Any ideas??? TY!
