Re: Shaking head when given bottle
It's usually not recommended to give a bottle before 4 to 6 weeks to avoid nipple confusion. That being said, babies have an excellent sense of smell and your Lo probably smells you and knows the real thing is right there. You could try leaving the house, take a quick walk or something while you mom or husband offer the bottle. Also, babies that young are extremely portable. I can't tell you how many times my Dh and I went to dinner while our ds snoozed away in his carrier.
