So my princess is just about 4 months and EBF. I'm returning to work in a few short weeks and have started trying too establish a good supply for daycare and getting her used to a bottle,. After buying 4 differet types of bottles we found one she would take. Next step getting enough pumped milk for a feeding. After 3 days I finally squeezed in enough time to get 3.5 oz of pumped milk.
So i put it in a breastmilk bag in the back of the fridge waiting for the perfect time to break it out for a daddy feeding. 2 days later i get 2.5 oz and do the same thing.
A couple days later that time comes...I have to go grocery shopping....no problem daddy breaks out the bag of milk. I get him and he says she used the bottle as a paci, like she does me and only took a half ounce. The next day I'm cleaning and see 2 bottles of BM with barely an ounce out of them. I ask him about it and he shrugs and says oh I didn't put the other bottle bag int eh fridge so I just pulled out the new one.
I want to scream....DO YOU NOT REALIZE HOW HARD IT WAS TO GET 6 OUNCES OF BM.
Instead I snap, what do you think I am a factory that it just ends up int eh fridge on its own, that its so simple to pump with 4 kids and cooking and cleaning to do.
He gives me this sheepish look and just blinks...then I realize I have to explain how much breastmilk is like liquid gold.
Now he knows...as soon as shes done put it back in the fridge.
