I store my bottles in the steriliser. I pretty much wash and sterilise after every use and leave the lid closed until I need to use it.
Re water I store mine in normal thermos. Didn't know it can cause bacteria.
To heat up EBM I just pour it into a sterilised bottle and use warm bath for a few minutes.
@bbhope did you get something nice for lunch.
@Gelati we stayed home today. Only went out the back for some fresh air. We had a really busy day yesterday so I'm tired and stayed home. At MG, I didn't have to rock her to sleep. I cuddled her and just talk to her gently until she's ready to be put in the pram. She will fall asleep normally. If she doesn't I will walk the pram a bit or pick her up if she's super fussy
I put DD directly into the car seat. Not from top and slide. She's ok with how I put her in. I don't have head rest and only just bought one because it just clicked to me that she might get sore neck! Lol. Bad mum. I normally wiggle her a bit to correct the sitting position so she's comfortable. At least she looks comfortable to me.
Is the seatbelt too tight maybe? And DS doesn't like it?
I think if both your DS want to stay awake longer maybe let them do that during the day. They are 4 months old now yeah? So must be more curious and playful.
I found DD different today. Doesn't want to finish her normal top up (which threw me out as I became unsure if she's full or not), and wanted to be awake more too. Maybe it's hot or maybe she's just starting to want see more and sleep less.
I'm really confused about the feeding. It feels like I have more BM but I'm not sure. I'm saying that because DD doesn't want her normal top up. She will drink less. But then she didn't sleep long today only catnap. So I'm just really confused. And with that I feed to sleep twice today as top up. Not the ideal feed, play, sleep.
I was thinking of just pumping for one day so I can have an idea of how much milk I produce and she consumes.
