    Unhappy Baby not taking pumped milk bottles

    My baby is 3 months old and has always taken a bottle of pumped milk. Recently she refuses to take a bottle under any circumstances. I have tried different nipples, warming milk to different temperatures, waiting until she is hungry, when she is happy, laying her down, everything! I have to undergo surgery in a week and I will not be able to breastfeed for 36 hours. Help!!!

    My EBM goes sour after about 3 days. My LO was drinking it anyway but once I realized how it tasted, I dumped it and now only keep it in the fridge for 3 days at the most.

    Have you tasted it?

    I have tasted it and it tastes normal. I have even given her a bottle fresh off the pump and she still cries and fights it.

    so when she refuses it, you are giving it to her, not someone else right?

    I had the same problem with my DD when I had surgery about a month ago. One thing that helped was to hold her out to feed her. If I held her in the nursing position-cradle hold (like most do when giving a bottle), she wanted to nurse. So I laid a pillow on my lap and then laid her on top out from me and that helped, she didn't want to nurse beca use she wasn't in the position.

    I have tried and my husband has tried with no luck. It's like she hates the nipples on bottles. She just pushes them out of her mouth with her tounge and turns her head avoiding it and cries.
