OK ladies, I've posted an outlandish possible solution (see nursing in public: nursing at school) but I don't think it would work for me. I am a student, and I am returning back to school on Jan 22. My son is 3 months old now, and I really need to get him to take a bottle. The problem is, is that he absolutely refuses. The kid knows whats best, and so do I. It breaks my heart to know that he is not ready for a bottle. I really need to get back to school, I only have a few semesters left, and right now is the opportune time for me to get back. My mother told me to basically starve him in to it, and that just seems crazy to me. so if any one has had or has been in my place I would greatly appreciate the advice.
