Hi, I am the father of a 4.5 mom DS. I am currently at home with him while taking my paternity leave. When my DW first went back to work, our DS protested for quite awhile against the bottle. After a week or so, he finally began taking EBM from a bottle, although it took feeding next to a vacuum cleaner to get him to calm down enough to accept it. Now a days, he is mostly ok with a bottle, with about one feeding a day to every other day he is really fussy so that I need a white noise app on my phone to get him to relax enough during a feeding, and about once a week he will completely boycott the bottle for a feeding or even two. He doesn't have any issues feeding off the breast. I feel like it he really just misses mom, and wants the comfort of suckling instead of dad and a bottle (can't blame him). Does anyone else have any experiences or ideas to make the bottle feedings easier, and less stressful for us both? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
