I have been MIA with posting for so long . I went back to work on August 26th. It's going ok. School started on the 3rd so of course it has been super super crazy since then.

I miss the babies a lot They have a great babysitter who is just down the street from my school but it's still hard. So far I am able to pump enough for them but barely. She says they get hungry and will give them extras here and there. I send them 4 3oz bottles for between the hours of 8am and 4:15pm when I get there. Today I sent one 4oz bottle for the morning since for me they have been going 3hrs in between feedings in the mornings but never go more than 2 for her. So I thought maybe it wasn't enough but then they had a really bad day today. So I'm not sure. I think Corbin is outgrowing is zantac dose again but I have no idea what Nolan's issue is. We tested the 4oz bottle on Sat morning and they went a good 3 hours in between. I'm not sure what to tell her though because I would hate to think they were crying and actually hungry but they just don't do that for me.

Overall we're doing ok. Just trying to get through this crazy month of school starting.
Thanks cavewoman for the amazing siggie!

All babies are different so don't know if this helps. Ellianna nurses a long nursing at 7. She then demands a 2 - 2 1/2 ounce bottle from my Mom (who is our babysitter ) at 8:30 and goes for a long morning nap (9-1). Then a 5 ounce bottle at 1, 3 and 5. She loves the bottle from Grammy but demands the breast when I walk in the door - even if she just ate. In addition, we tried to make it 2 shorter naps but that does not work.

Leif can easily go 3-4 hours between feedings with me but at the sitter, he eats every 2 hours. I trust my sitter wholeheartedly. She is a neighbor, friend and fellow church member. I just think that when he fusses, she feeds him. Where at home, he fusses and I do other measures. I thought about talking to her but decided not to because ultimately...he is getting great care from her.

Bodhi's feeding schedule is different for Muriel than it is at home. Of course, he also will take a bottle at her house but will refuse it at home unless he is really hungry. He is also refusing his last bottle of the day with Muriel and will wait until I get home for a marathon nursing session. I had to adjust my pumping schedule so that I was pumping earlier in the afternoon to accommodate him.

They had a better day today. They had the one 4oz this morning and then two 3 oz bottles and I ended up getting there before they were ready to eat again so I was able to feed them. Their schedule today was much more like how they are for me when nursing and she said they were much happier so I'm hoping this 4oz bottle and the rest 3s work for them.

Yeah, babies act totally different for non-family caregivers than for family. They will sleep differently, eat different, and interact differently. Some babies will be calm and in control the whole time and then fall apart when their families come. It was really surprising to see this new little baby just start screaming and crying when Mom or Dad came for pick-up. It's because they missed them and they didn't feel good about expressing it with others.

Your kiddos are probably cuing to eat more because they know they're away from you and are seeking that extra bit of comfort.
