So, today I had a special date planned with Ellie- a trip to the waterpark with her good friend Brooke. I made plans to have Saedi in hourly care for about 6 hours to give us enough time. I dropped off Saedi & then Natalie, Brooke, Ellie & I headed out to Tie Breaker Water Park. The girls were having a great time (mainly eating each others snacks) & it was good for the two older girls to have time with their Mommies & no baby sisters.
We had been at the waterpark for about 2 1/2 hours when I received a call from hourly care saying that Saedi had been fussy all morning, they were pretty sure she was hungry, but she wouldn't take her bottle...nor would she take 2 others that they tried! Last week a similar incident happened, but I figured it would pass.
Now I'm not sure what to do. Ellie had no trouble taking a bottle, & Saedi never used to either. I'd like to continue nursing her, but I also want the freedom to be away from her for a feeding or two. What do I do? I'm thinking of trying to give her a bottle myself so I can see what she does. She's always taken a bottle from Riley, although not always very well. Do I spend money on new bottles in hopes that they work? Will a baby give in & eat if she really is hungry?
So, moms, I need any advice you're willing to dish out!
