She did it last time...how do I keep her from doing it this time? (formula eater) Update*
When her sister was a baby, she would get into the powdered baby formula and eat it. After dumping most of the container on the floor. No matter where I put it. In the kitchen cabinet, in a drawer, hell, even the top shelf in the closet.
She would climb and get it. Every time. There was no putting it up. There was no hiding it from her. The second my back was turned, she had it and was eating it by the scoop.
How do I keep it from happening this time with the new baby? She's just bigger now, and more easily accessible to things.
And before people tell me to breastfeed, I do that as well. I don't produce enough milk to feed full-time. I tried it with my daughters. I breastfed my older daughter until she was 6 weeks old and the doctors told me she was going into failure to thrive because I didn't have enough milk.
She is a normal child, advanced in speech. She did this the entire year her sister was on formula. At that time, she was 14 months until a couple of months after 2. She had been to a doctor, she's not lacking nutrients. Out may have been because she had just been taken off formula 2 months before her sister came. Most likely just remembered seeing me make bottles for her. I'm trying to help keep it from happening when the new baby comes.
Again to the breastfeeding moms. My daughter was 6 lbs 12 oz at birth. I strictly breastfed for 6 weeks. At her check up, she was under 5 lbs. That is not normal. So I had to switch to formula.
