So the "no water" rule went over like a lead balloon. Daycare lady was fine with it - but babe didn't like the formula I brought to use if they ran out of BM so apparently she was "very cranky" towards the end of the day (although she was totally fine when she came home and just nursed a little bit just now......).
Anyway - what can I do? I guess I don't quite see what the problem is but I'm not there to see what is and isn't happening. Then DH picks her up and he's all pissy about it now like I effing deprived her or something. DH is pushing to just ok the water. Fwiw, shes only given it after shes finished all her BM (usually 18+ ounces) and its towards the end of the day when she can nurse for real from me soon.
I feel really crappy because we have no supply issues when I'm home with her. We just spent Wednesday-Sunday together and she was never overly hunger or seemed to nurse a lot. I've felt like I'm not pumping enough during the day but I'm already pumping 4 times during work - I dunno how I could pump any more!
I just don't want to mess up my baby's system. Is it truly harmful to give a few ounces of water a day if "needed" or is it more like a "just don't give a lot"??
