I know there are a lot of mommies out there who read our blog and I am hoping at least a few of you have some suggestions to help me out. Here’s my problem:
I’d love to go get my hair done by a friend of mine who is in beauty school about an hour or so away from where I live. I would be gone at least 4 or five hours. My daugher who is three months old is exclusively breast fed. Within the first month or so after she was born she was given an occasional bottle of pumped breast milk without any problems but for the past two months I haven’t been away from her long enough for her to need a bottle. We tried to give her one the other day and she refused it. I tried again today and she screamed.
I’d like to be able to leave for a few hours for some much needed mommy time but I am afraid she will just cry and not take the bottle and that my hubby won’t be able to handle it. Before I make my appointment, do any of you have any suggestions to get her to start taking a bottle again? Help!
