I'm ok with reverse cycling in theory - but if tonight is an example of how that would continue I'd say it just isn't sustainable. She took nothing all day, and I picked her and DS up at 5:30. We live only 3 mins away so I fed her immediately at home (sometimes feed her at sitter's first) and then was off for parent-teacher mtg for DS at 6. Came home at 6:45 and fed her four more times btw 6:45-8. And I ate my supper in there.
We cosleep most of the time (she'll sleep in playpen for first shift if I don't fall asleep with her) and I'm sure I've fed her another 3-4 times between 8-2am. I'm sick with a cold and have been for 3 weeks... Not getting enough sleep and if tonight's an example, no legitimate chance to keep up with the kitchen/ lunches etc if I spend all my time feeding her.
Help!! Any suggestions? Sitter had success giving her bottles for a while but only when she basically held her down... Don't love that idea but I'm not loving the alternative either. I want her to feel some control over things, especially with this big change for her but I don't think I can keep this up. We live about a half hour from my work, and sitter is near us, so I could come out at lunchtime but it would be about 1.5 hour return trip and then it would be hard to find time to pump. Do we experiment with another kind of bottle or sippy cup? Any ideas welcomed. Sorry for writing a novel!
