hi! my daughter just turned 3 months old and she has only been breastfed. i am just now returning to work part time and am able to take her with me. all of my family and co workers are on my case because my daughter will not take a bottle or pacifier. i have pumped and frozen tons of milk to use when needed. i was planning to return to work full time but decided not to. i have tried feeding breastmilk from a bottle but she refuses. everyone says its insane and that they have never heard of a baby that will not take a bottle. they (family & co workers) say to just let her cry and when she gets hungry enough she will take the bottle, but i cant let her cry she wants and needs me! she is nursing on demand usually every 2-3 hours sometimes more. whenever she is fussy or acts hungry i always try to nurse her. i LOVE breastfeeding, the bonding and health benefits, and want only the best for her. i do have to do a bit of planning when trying to run errands around her feedings. so am i just crazy for not making her take breastmilk from the bottle or is it common for some babies to refuse bottles. the pacifier is not an issue my other daughter wouldnt take one either thank goodness! we have tried all kinds of bottles and nipples but it just doesnt work for her. should i do anything diffrent trying the bottles or just tell everyone to back off. it breaks my heart to hear her cry and if i can calm her by nursing i dont see the problem! is there some reason everyone is pushing the use of a bottle that i am un aware of?! thanks so much!
