My dd just turned 6 weeks today and since last Thursday we have been trying to train her on the bottle with my own breast milk. My dh does the training while I leave the room or remain out of her sight. We try our best to do it the same time every day and for about 15 minutes a shot. She usually cries and either lets the milk run out of her mouth or pushes the bottle out of her mouth. Only once or twice has she actually sucked on the nipple and she rarely swallows any of the milk.
We try to do it when she is not hungry or full, but it is hard to pick the right timing.
At what point should we try a different nipple? I go back to work on March 20th and I need to get her trained!
