    Default baby prefers bottles now

    I had to return to work a month ago, and so I pump milk for her to have from a bottle while I'm gone. We had been doing great breastfeeding until recently--now she pulls off and cries at the breast, and ony eats a little at a time, but will happily drink a bottle. Any tips on how to improve our bf relationship again? Oh, I do have some mild OALD (spray) but that didnt use to bother her...

    Oh, btw lo is 5 1/2 months now.

    My LO is doing the same thing, except at night. I was thinking that he was just getting distracted during the day.

    How is she eating at night? What about on your days off?

    Since you have an OALD, she's probably getting more than you think she is in a shorter amount of time than is "average". And her age is prime-time for getting distrated. Here's a great site about distractible babies: http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns...ible-baby.html
