We wanted to take her while it was still hot out, and before we adults needed to get dinner ready, so we grabbed her after she had woken up from a short nap and slapped (gently) some sunscreen on her before she really could register what was going on. Spencer fed her a bottle
[side note: the bottle feeding is so far going well… she doesn’t like it as much as she likes nursing, but she does take a bottle of milk from both myself and Spencer. So far no formula has been needed or given, and a bad batch of sour milk is the only problem we’ve encountered in the last week regarding feeding. The strategy now is to feed her one bottle on the days before I go to work so she doesn’t “forget.”]
We dressed her in her swim diaper, which was huge. We have one swimsuit for her that is also too big- it was a hand me down without a tag so I’m not sure what size it is supposed to be- but it actually worked pretty well; she is such a chunk baby that I’m sure she will fit into it fully pretty soon.
She may have given us a different reaction other than indifference had we chosen to take her at a time she was in a better mood and more smiley, but overall I guess you could call it a success.
