I am having huge problems!
My baby is 6 months old, and I want to give her breast milk until she is a year or two old. Up until now I have exclusively breastfed. I have just started her on solids and she loves it! The problem I am having is that I would love for her to take breast milk from a bottle, so that I can drop her off at families and so I can have a little more feedom. But she ABSOLUTELY will NOT take a bottle. She acts offended. I have tried so many different things, my dh has also tried to no avail. Today was aweful because she likes to suck before she falls asleep and that is another thing I want to get away from (i want to get away from this bc she is 21 1/2 pounds) so I tried everything possible to get her to fall asleep without sucking. She doesn't take a bottle or passifier so I tried walking bouncing singing rocking, etc.... She screamed for an hour and a half!!! It killed me inside. She was looking at me and trying to suck my cheeks or any flesh she could get her lips on, it was sooo sad, I even started crying because I have no idea if I am doing the right thing or not. I never want to make my baby cry like that. I have no idea if her weight is bc she feeds for comfort or if it is just genetics. I am so confused I don't know what to do, does anyone have any advice???
