Hi There, my little guy is almost 2 months now and has been exclusively breastfeed. I'm returning to work just a few hours a day and he is here with daddy and a bottle of pumped milk. I've ordered new nipples for the bottle hoping this will help with our issue. But he fusses and cries a majority of the time I am gone. As soon as I get home he quiets down. Then I put him to the breast and he smiles and is perfectly fine. Sometimes he doesn't even nurse right away but snuggles with the breast and just hangs out. Nursing is such a great comfort for us both but is there anything we can do to help him be comforted by daddy? It seems he has a hard time with this. We have even tried to wrap up the baby in my clothes so that he has my smell. But nothing seems to work and he refuses the bottle.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks.
