    I have these bottles and if baby is fussy about the nipple like mine is she/he may not like is. The nipple does not have a soothing shape. I like that the milk doesn't come out when it is turned over.

    Does your baby take a pacifier? Some nipples out there look very much like pacifiers and I found that getting my bf baby to take a bottle was easier with these types of nipples.

    Mairismum,
    It is difficult to say exactly how much EBM a baby will need/take while you are away. I would suggest, though, that you discuss the differences between BM and formula with dd caregiver. It has been suggested by some recent studies that BM can be left out during the day and reused if not finished, as opposed to formula which must be dumped. Many moms have found it helps to send milk in the smallest amount possible (whatever is the least you think she will take) and then let the caregiver know they can always offer more. Want to watch out for unnecessary waste!

    Here is some information (not LLL) on this:

    Good luck!

    I do daycare for breastfed babies, and the ones I have had have prefered the Gerber Nuk. One mother had the Avent system but her first baby refused it outright, and her second would take it but prefered the Nuk for whatever reason. Just have to keep trying - or consider a cup - sippy cups with or without the spill proof lids have been used. I had a clear cp and clear lid that was wonderful as you cold see where the milk was, and the amount going in, as it is really the caregiver watching and gauging the amount of milk going in, with baby giving cues.
