I need some advice/tips/suggestions on how to handle going to they gym at night. So I pick Taylor up from daycare around 5pm. Her last snack is usually around 3-3:30pm. On the nights I don't go to the gym, she eats when we get home around 5:30/6. BUT, the nights we go to the gym, we don't get home until around 6:45pm. I feel bad that she would have to go from 3/3:30-6:45 with no food when she's used to eating at 5:30ish.
So my question is, what would you do? I suppose I could see if Daycare could feed her an extra snack around 4:45. That would hold her over. Or she will be on whole milk soon, do I just give her a sippy of that (not in a bottle since she will hopefully be bottle free soon), although she would only be able to drink it in the car on the way there, as she can't have it in the gym daycare. Or do you have another suggestion. I only go twice a week during the week so it's not an every day thing. I've been trying to figure out how to do this now that she's eating full meals and I've been stumped.
Thanks so much!!

Could the daycare give her the snack around 4 instead? Maybe you could give her a quick snack before the gym or just do the whole milk. I think with it being 2 nights a week, it should be okay for her to go a little later. At least you are getting out and doing something for yourself, that is awesome!
