Rylen’s gone on strike, she’s refusing the bottle. Groan.
We’ve tried all sorts, different people feeding, R using one of my tees on his shoulder, different teats, bottles, late afternoon, evening, lunch time. I even read that you should try a little apple juice and we did but nada. She screams, cries till her face is red, uses her fist to block, push, shove the bottle away. She even had a temper tantrum complete with stomping of her feet on the cushion. It’s stressing me out because I have to go back to work and I’ve read of babies just not drinking till their Mom comes home! R said he’s got a colleague who’s wife is a stay at home Mom and the kid is 15 months and only accepts boobies. Sigh, talk about a connection.
