coming to terms
Posted June 30, 2009on:
with failures. We successfully introduced the bottle to May for 3 days last week. Then I heated up the milk too hot and let Son feed her at bed time, when she typically get fed by me after a bath. Then I let her see me when Son was trying to feed her. As of Sunday, she no longer takes the bottle. Monday’s battle was total loss. Today’s battle was too. When I looked at her smiling at me happily after I fed her, I realized it’s not important whether she takes the bottle anymore. Why put Son through hours of a distressed baby. I don’t think I’ll go anywhere for more than 1 hr without May anyway. I will continue to offer the bottle and try to teach her to accept it, in my own time, when May is happy. I’m sorry, May. I’m sorry that I put you through such unnecessary pains. I’m sorry that I made Son suffer 3 days with May screaming for 1+ hrs. She’s constantly growing and changing, in a year’s time, there won’t be any more talks of bottles.
