I returned to work today and worked a 4 hour shift. I nursed right before I left her with the babysitter and I left a bottle and extra milk. She hasn't taken the bottle well ever, but I hoped that she would take it today. Well, she drank about a half ounce total during the almost 5 hours we were away from eachother. I nursed her as soon as I got to the babysitter's. She didn't pee for a long time, and when she did pee I noticed it was the darkest yellow I've ever seen (we do EC so it's easier for me to tell the color of her urine). She's had 3 good nursing sessions since I picked her up and she's only peed three times since then, and usually she pees a lot more than that.
Should I be concerned? I know my oldest reverse cycled for 2 months until she decided she would take a bottle, but we didn't do EC so I have no idea if her pee was concentrated like DD2's has been. And also DD2 is a couple months younger than DD1 was when I went back to work.
My babysitter lives pretty close to the freeway so I could nurse her at lunch when I go back to full time, but really should I be concerned, or is it not a big deal to reverse cycle like that, even if the urine gets more concentrated? If it is a big deal, what tips do you have to get her to take a bottle?
