Time away?? Help me please??????
my daughter is 5 months old and I have been with her almost every minute of her life. I breast feed only. No bottles and I'm not a good pumper. I have to take her everywhere I go!! My mom is the only one who can watch her for me while I'm here. She nurses on demand which is all the time!! What in the world can I do to get her used to other people while I'm not around? She is very social and loves people but usually I'm around. We are not on a schedule for anything.
2. your daughter picks up on your cues and reacts: look for an activity she may enjoy and let your mom guide her in that direction so that she will have something to do.
3.Your child may be more likely to have a fit when you leave if she is tired, hungry or restless. If you can, leave when your daughter is fed and rested.
4.Offer a special blanket, stuffed animal or other comforting object for your daughter to hold while you're gone.
You need a schedule and no more on demand feeding as it seems like your also a pacifier.
Hard to do but better for both of you. She needs to be with another adult too... It's soooo important for her. Especially a grandma. And u can go to a movie. It will be life changing
Feeding schedule and no falling asleep at breast.. Put her down more and remember its okay for her to fuss. Also if she's hungry she will take a bottle but you CANNOT be in the house. They can smell you... I promise. She won't go hungry.
Cassandra where did you live?
