When DD was 2 months old, DH and I allowed her to go camping with my ILs (6 hours away). When DD left, she was eating 4 oz every 3 1/2 to 4 hours. She also would be very content doing tummy time on the floor for hours. I asked them to stick to the feeding schedule because she needed to work her way to 4 hours in between feedings, and to please not hold her all day.

When DD came home, she was eating every 2 hours and I couldn't put her down for 5 minutes. Let's just say that was the last time they took her camping without me. DH and the ILs were pissed, and I said, "Tough cookies. They aren't the ones taking care of her all day."

Signed - Should Have Known Better!
