I have been trying to get my baby to take a bottle for over 2 months now. I wont go in to all the details, but I tried every last bit of advice everyone has given me. I have a cabinet full of bottles- I mustve spent 100s of dollars on bottles! She is now 6 months and I would like to express milk and give her bottles for a while and then completely wean her by 8 months.
To make a long story short- my DD took a bottle today. We got up and I decided to give her a bottle when she first woke up. She fussed a little- and took it. She took one mid morning and fell asleep for her morning nap. Then woke up, had carrots and drank from the bottle again! Like she had been drinking from a bottle for MONTHS! She got lots of hugs and kisses!!!!!
So, my question- should I even give her my breast anymore? I don't want to go back to the grueling days of getting her to take a bottle. I just want her to be comfortable and know that a bottle can be her comfort zone too! What should I do?????/
