    Hi Mama! Sorry that your baby is giving you trouble. What you're going through is pretty common- many babies who get bottles quickly realize that getting milk from a bottle is easier than getting it out of the breast, and decide to kick up a fuss every time they don't get that nice, easy bottle.

    What sort of bottles are you using? And what sort of bottle nipples?

    Here's a link which may help: Help - My Baby Won't Nurse!

    I'd do as much skin-to-skin contact as possible, and if you're not co-sleeping, you may want to start: some babies who are very resistant to nursing will latch on and feed during the night when they are too relaxed and sleepy to kick up a fuss.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
