Yes, I’ve been missing in action. I of course, have a lot to say, and little time to say it. But the most pressing thing I want to talk about right now is this:
I start back to work next week, and Pookah won’t take a bottle.
I’ve tried different nipples, I’ve tried different people giving him the bottle, I’ve tried not being in the room, I’ve tried giving it to him when he’s hungry and giving it to him when he is semi hungry.
He is not fooled.
What am I going to do?
When I’ve left him with my mother or C-Dub, he just wont eat. Luckily, I’ve only been gone for at the most 4 hours and I always fed him right before I left. But when he sees that I am not there, he just refuses the bottle. Or puts up such a fuss, that you don’t even want to give it to him. I mean crying and looking sooo pitiful. Like he’s saying,
WHY WHY won’t you just give me what I want!!!
C-Dub did get him to take it once. I think he was just worn down. And when he saw me again, he latched on for half the night.
Aye Dios Mio!
Any advice out there?
