I plan on breast feeding for at least the first year of my baby's life. The problem is that she will NOT take the bottle ever. It's usually not a problem because I'm mostly away form her no longer than two hours, so she doesn't ever starve. This coming Saturday I will be away from her for about twelve hours which is by far the longest time away ever. My husband thinks that if she gets hungry enough, she'll take the bottle. I have tried Dr Brown's slow flow and medium flow nipple and Born Free nipples. We try every day. she just plays with it and sometimes gags and cries. I am so nervous about this Saturday. What should I do??? Can she starve if she doesn't eat for twelve hours???
I forgot to mention like 6 weeks ago she did drink a whole bottle twice for my mom but then decided she'd never suck form a bottle again I guess. Arrrgh!!
