Please help! I have posted about this issue before, but it is now an URGENT problem, as I will go back to work at the end of next week and my 4.5 month old is STILL refusing the bottle.
I've tried every kind of bottle, every kind of nipple, even the nuby sippy cups. I've given her cold milk, warm milk, even formula. She just screams and screams and screams. Most of the time DH tries while I wait in another room, but she screams when I try, too.
I am at my wits end and don't know how I'll ever be able to go back to work if she will not take a bottle. She has taken one before, when she was about 9-11 weeks old. So I know she knows how to do it. She will also take it when there is apple juice in it, but even then she barely sucks on it.
Up until now we have just kept saying "oh we'll try it another time" and just gone back to bf'ing. But now I HAVE to go back to work and I cannot imagine what my LO will do if she will not drink from a bottle.
Does anybody have any suggestions? We are desparate!!!!
