My LO will be six months just after Christmas, and I am returning to work beginning in January. I have been anticipating this transition and have been trying to introduce a bottle every now and then to get baby used to it, and she is having none of it! She took a bottle very early on, between 2 and 4 weeks because of sore nipples, but when things with BF started going smoothy, I ditched the bottle and never re-introduced it until now. Apparently my DD has forgotten how, or just plain doesn't want to have anything to do with the false mama. I have tried a few different kinds of bottles, the NUK, Breastflow, and Medela slow flows, each to no avail. I almost never try to give her the bottle myself, and she still refuses it from her father and grandmother. I am at my wits end with this process; she either chews on the end of the bottle nipple or turns red and screams. She nurses between 8-12 times per day, and about 2-3 times per night still. I know this has probably been discussed, but I am just desperately looking for any new suggestions or ideas of anything that has worked for you ladies??
