My DH and I tried to give our 10 week DD a bottle of expressed BM this afternoon. It was a total failure - she screamed and cried and resisted for 30mintues at which point I stepped in and said "forget this, it's not that important, I'm feeding her."
I'm not going back to work until she's about 8 months, but it would be helpful for her to take a bottle for the occassional night out. I figure in a few more months we can introduce a sippy cup and she could just get her BM from that when we're out if all of this fails totally...is that reasonable?
Are there any suggestions that you might have to help her take a bottle? We tried two different types of bottles and I left the room. At one point she was sort of mouthing the bottle nipple and seemed to be trying to figure it out, but that ended in her screaming.
Thanks for any tips you may have.
