Just wondering if anyone has just gone out for hours & left their breastfed baby with someone else in order to get them to take a bottle/cup?
It feels really mean but i just cannot get ds to take a bottle or any kind of cup from me, dh, my mum or my sister. The times other people offered ive been outside in the backyard or gone for a walk.
Its not working so maybe its time for some tough love. Should i do it? Will it even work, or will it just upset both of us?
I need him to at least drink water by April for daycare, even if he wont drink anything else. Also to be honest (& i know it sounds selfish) i just need a break occasionally. Ive never been away from ds for more than an hour a couple of times since he was born almost 8 months ago. Dh gets to go & play sport sometimes on weekends, just occasionally i want to go out by myself or with friends for a half day or even a full day & at the moment i cant.
