Ok, my baby is 6 months old. I went back to work when he was 3 months old. When I went back to work he was a little fussy when he was given a bottle. She would get the milk in him, but would have to work with him for a while. I was also going and feeding him at lunch. He turned 6 months on Fed 23 and because my job location changed I stopped going and feeding him at lunch. I knew he prefered me over the bottle (that is how I want it), but when I would go pick him up, daycare would tell me that he ate just fine. Well this week daycare is on vacation so my sister in law has come to my house to take care of the kids. Well the baby absolutley will not take a bottle from her, so I've been going and feeding him at lunch. I have told her things she can try such as hold him in his favorite position, try giving him a bottle in a postion other than a nursing postion. I had her try spoonfeeding. He would not do that either. He pushed the spoon away. I had her try a sippy cup. He want take anything from her. I thought maybe the milk had a smell or taste he didn't like, but I tried it last night and it seemed fine. So my conclusion is he just don't want to eat with her and he is waiting on me. Which I think is perfectly normal. He is nursing at lunch, and when I get home. We co-sleep so he is nursing at least 3 times during the night. In my heart of heart I feel he is ok. I guess the encouragement I need to hear is that my instincts are right. Sometimes people can have a way of making you doubt yourself and that is sort of how I am feeling. I just want to hear of other moms who's baby's refused a bottle. And also next week when he is back on his original schedule what do I need to do if he continues to refuse the bottle because I will be at a different location next week and want get to go and feed him at lunch. One more thing I did have my husband try a bottle to see if he would take one from him last night but he would not. I told my husband that we have a smart baby he likes his milk straight from the tap.
