reverse cycling, refusing bottle....need help!!
Ok so I have been off work for the past ten days. My dd is at daycare 5 days a week and gets approx 12 oz a day. She only gets the bottle at daycare. So yesterday was her first day back at the sitter and from 7 am until 5 pm she only at an 1/2 an ounch :( my sitter tried everything she could think of. She said she was only fussy for a few hours. Anyway I know she does the whole reverse cycling thing where she eats all night and eats very little during the day but 1/2 ounce. Once I got her home she was as happy as she could be laughing giggling, didnt act like she was starving. So I fed her and she took a nap. It was a normal night. She nursed during the night normal. So stupid me told me Non breastfeeding mother about this. She FLIPPED!!!!!!! OMG she was giving me an earful. Telling me how terrible i was for letting this happen, that during my time off i should have been giving her a bottle. She doesnt understand that she will not take a bottle from me. I am the first one in my family to breast feed so everyone has answers but have never been through it. I know I am a good mom. My daughter is 5 months and is a little chunk. Healthy as ever!!! I am doing what I think is best for her, yes I feel terrible that she is fussy and will not take her bottle. Idk what to do. Anyone have an suggestions?? Has anyone tried breastmilk slushies?? Thanks :) Do you think Im being terrible for letting this happen???
