Re: Baby refusing bottles of BM! Help!
I'm also an RN and we had this same problem. A couple of things helped us:
Try warming the bottle nipple up first.
Tuck the bottle under your arm and hold the baby as if you were nursing him or her.
Try feeding the baby before he/she gets really hungry and upset.
The under-the-arm trick worked wonders for us!
There are three reasons for breast-feeding: the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers; and the cat can't get it. ~Irena Chalmers
