One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone is feeding Trinity and they waste formula. I know how much she drinks when she wakes up, before/after her solid feeding, before bed, etc. It can range anywhere from 4-6 oz. When I leave someone a schedule for her and they don't follow it (I.e. Give her a bottle when she doesn't really want it just because she's fussy, giving her too much, feeding her too close together, etc.) it really pisses me off. We all know formula is not cheap and every time a few ounces get poured down the drain it can add up.
Am I the only one who gets upset when DH/SO, grandparents, babysitter, etc. waste formula? I know its inevitable sometimes cuz baby won't always drink it all. But when it can be avoided it upsets me.
I left Kaylin in the church nursery about a mont ago... Kaylin was fussing because she was tired. So the 14 year old idiot shoves the bottle in her mouth.
Then she freaks at ME because she threw the whole thing up on the carpet.
She goes, "You need to clean the floor because your baby threw up on it.
I was like... not only did you force feed my child... you wasted about $2 of her milk. I was TICKED.
My mom threw away the can with about a half a scoop on the bottom of it... I took it out of the trash after I flipped out on her!! She thought I was nuts.... LOL
I can't stand when someone assumes that she's hungry everytime she fusses. I'm like, "Do you not know any other way to soothe a baby besides sticking a bottle in its mouth?" 90% of the time she fusses isn't out of hunger.
I know that I am not crazy then. I don't like anyone else to feed my child unless I present. I have twins and I keep them on the same schedule. I would not be happy if they got off the schedule because someone was stupid!!
I'm very anal about Trinity's feeding schedule too. Some say I'm too uptight. If a feeding is an hour off it throws everything off during her day. I just got her on a good nighttime schedule and I don't want it getting messed up because somebody can't tell the difference between hunger, restlessness, boredom, etc.
