I feel like I am constantly getting comments (mostly unwanted) from my in home daycare provider. My daughter has been there for 2 months now and it seems like it is always something or the other. Yesterday, I go to pick her up and she can't wait to tell me, in an exasperated tone, that my DD "doesn't like the baby pool". She said she sat in her with it for a few minutes, which she tolerated, then she didn't like it and wanted to get out. My DD was born in November so she has never gone "swimming" before. I tried her myself in the pool and the water felt pretty cold (atleast not like the warm bathwater she is used to!) It was like she couldn't believe it. Geez lady, she is a baby, if she doesn't like something, move on to something else.
Then she had to tell me that my DD doesn't like when she holds her sitting up or to burp. She said she "screams like she is in pain" until she gets into a different position. She doesn't do this for us. I told her, "I don't know what to tell you, she is fine for me". She keeps asking us if we have talked to our pedi about her motor skills because she is not sitting up, or rolling over, at 5 months. My DD is a big girl. As my pedi put it, she is probably just "content" and all babies develop at their own pace.
Lastly, she keeps asking me about feeding her cereal. She is pressing me to put it in her bottles. We just started her on spoon fed cereal and are taking it very slow because I am not 100% sure that the cereal is agreeing with her. Also, my pedi recommended to spoon feed her, not bottle feed her, so she eventually gets used to it. It is just practice at this stage, and she said no baby foods until after 5 months, although it is up to us. We feed my DD in the mornings, because I definately want to do it myself to gauge her reactions, plus I can't imagine the comments she would make - she doesn't like the spoon! the chair! this, that, the other thing!
I am so frustrated. A couple friends I have deal with the same issue with their in home DCP. Is it that no one can take care of/deal with your child like your own? Or is this unusual. I need some advice here. Thanks.
