I send by boy to IFC when he was 4months from 730am-7pm
3 feed a day from 120ml to now 1 solid at 12pm + 150ml per feed, there are times only 2 feed a day, which the last feed is around 4plus. His nap time ranging from 30mins to 2hrs+
I gave clear instructions to principal that I want real time & actual reporting ie what time sleep, what time shower, no of diapers change, how many ml of milk left per feed etc. after 1st 2 weeks trial. I don't want teacher record for the sake of record and end of the day I assume he finish up 150ml but in fact he's not.
After speak to principal I notice there's changes, teacher pay extra attention in reporting the facts, principal excuses was teacher might afraid parents will question why got so much milk leftover bla bla bla.. I told them I don't mind if there's wastage, just let me know the fact and don't strictly follow 3hrs feeding rules by waking him up for milk when he's sleeping.
Reason why I speak to principal is because his nap time and feeding pattern is totally different from what he is at home. On our 1st day there, the so call senior teacher told me "u must set schedule for them, u cannot feed by demand, we will help u to train him here" I was shock when i heard and start observe his behaviour change, he start scream when he's hungry. Also through the conversation with the teacher I decided not to give them breast milk, one of the teacher said breast milk is more troublesome and taking longer time to heat up if baby is hungry. 1st feed at 8am is breastmilk from home, 2nd and 3rd feed are formula. I will give them surprise visit at lunch time to see how he is sleeping, I don't swaddle him at home, they swaddle him which I don't mind. I also speak to the kitchen helper if there's chance so that I know exactly what they cook. Read more
