Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've been on the boards - my LO is 4 months old and we've gotten nursing down great! I love the special bond I feel with him when I nurse him, but as I'm going back to work, I've begun trying to get him to take a bottle... and failing miserably.
When he was younger he had no problem taking a bottle, and I didn't push it much since I really wanted to make sure he got the hang of nursing. I feel like we've tried everything. different nipples, different bottles, different positions, etc. It gets to the point where he starts screaming sometimes just from seeing the bottle come near him!
We've gotten some luck of getting him to eat a little right when he wakes up with freshly pumped breastmilk, but even that's rare.
any suggestions would be appreciated!
