Bottle Feeding / Breast Feeding Nightmare
So I was feeling really strong, really positive, really... and then... he just wasn't drinking anything. I offered expressed breast milk, formula milk, baby juice, cooled boiled water, I offered them in bottles with varying lids and beakers, sippy cups and a sports bottle. Well he took 4 oz on Saturday but that was it. By Sunday morning his nappies were bone dry. He even stopped eating foods, now our Joshua loves his breakfast. By early Sunday afternoon I was beginning to panic. So... yep, I breastfeed him. I know that I broke my resolve, but seriously was I supposed to let him become ill? I can't feel guilty for feeding him, but I have to work out how we are going to resolve this. I need to take some medication for this miserable arthritis.
