Unfortunately, I have to go back to work in a couple of weeks (I really don't want to, but my family needs the extra income) and my ds STILL refuses the bottle. DS is 2-1/2 months old now and I've never been able to get him to take the bottle. Even in the hospital when they needed to bring his blood glucose levels up quickly, he refused the bottle. Occasionally, he will take a bottle from my husband or my 11 year old dd, but it's not consistent because dh is a truck driver and he's only home once a month for two days and dd is only with us every other weekend because she lives with her father. Today I took him to the daycare he'll be at with my toddler and they weren't able to get him to take one either. The last time dh was home he tried to get ds to take bm in a bottle and ds refused it completely. DH used a syringe in the end to get some milk into ds, but ds spit out the 1/2 tsp of milk dh got in his mouth and refused to take anymore. This wouldn't be an issue if I worked somewhere I could at least take ds with me or my family didn't need the money. How do I get this child to take a bottle? He's the only one of my three kids who has ever refused anything other than the breast. Please, help.
