I would love, love, LOVE any and all advice pertaining to the following...
So I leave in 1 month for 4 days with my precious best college girlfriends. I literally am beside myself with excitement. However I have a few items that MUST be taken care of before I can fly away completely without care. And thus the needed advice.
1. How do you get a 7 month old to take a bottle? He literally just plays with it. He chews and maybe sucks once or twice. I usually can get him to take 1/2 an ounce. BIG, big deal. I need him to be able to eat while I am gone.
2. How do you get the forementioned 7 month old to sleep through the night? I am pumping enough milk to have a night feed but would SO love it to be eliminated before I go. I know he does not need the calories. He will not take a paci so there is not a little way I can soothe him. He has had 6 ear infections since he was 3 months old so I have been told by my pedi not to let him cry it out. I put him down awake for naps and most bedtimes. We have a consistent bedtime rountine. He knows how to put himself to sleep. He takes 2, 1.5-2 hour naps. He goes down about 6:30-7 pm and usually wakes anywhere from 10:30-12. If he wakes on the early end, he usually wakes again around 4-5am. The first waking is usually a 5 alarm cry. The second I can usually leave him. I have no idea how to help him nor do I know what is waking him. Would love any help!
