Re: HELP! My 4mo old is on a strike and has never taken to bottles
How many total times during 24 hours is she nursing? Something that sometimes helps to keep in mind during a strike is that some babies go all night without nursing, so one long stretch during normal waking hours can be okay if overall they are nursing enough. Is she fussy in with the strike? Is she sick or teething?
If you do want to give her expressed milk, using a bottle might make the strike worse. You can use a small cup (like the kind you give medicine in), a spoon, dropper, or syringe. Here's some info on how to use those methods. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/a...e-feeding.html
