I have not been here much at all. My maternity leave has come to an end. I go back to work Monday. I am terrified of leaving Eva. She is starting to be afraid of people she doesn't know and will cry when others hold her. Even her grandparents. Also she HATES taking a bottle. We have tried several kinds and we have found it doesn't matter what bottle, she wants mommy. Granted, we haven't had much good practice because I am the one with her the most. She ends up taking it eventually but screams bloody murder. I am a mess. Positive thoughts or encouragement is appreciated. We visited her new daycare again Thursday and she is well aware of my concerns. I am jus so worried imagining her hungry and crying all day. I am going to be a basket case all week.

good luck.
Dont be so hard on yourself
Your baby will adjust, it will take some time but she wont starve, she will eventually eat and get used to eating from a bottle at daycare

I know how hard it is. I was so upset with my first. I suspect she will miss her first feeding or even two, and then chug. Try not to call the first day. They will call if there really is a problem. If it helps, think of it this was. There are times that Ellianna sleeps 10-11 hours without nursing. For a little, he might just cluster in the morning and night. In a couple of months she will take food with a little sippee. You will make it. I promise (I did it three times )

Thanks girls. I appreciate the comments. She acutely did a lot better than I thought! The daycare provider texted me all throughout the day and sent pics. It was very sweet. She took two 2 oz bottles but the took her like an hour to take the whole thing. Then she took another 2 oz very well. And she took a two hour nap. Then my husband picked her up and gave her another 2 oz and she took it perfectly. Which is huge because she never has taken it that well and been happy about it. So I am very happy and I hope it continues to improve. She has been nursing since I walked in the door though! I dont mind a bit!

Sounds like it went pretty well! I'm sure she will do great after she gets used to it.

So glad all went well. How did you do? I know getting pictures throughout day helped me when I went back to work.
