help with bottle feeding

Feb 8th, 2012, 15:07 PM   #1
i need some advice.
i am going back to work next week, my LO is 4 months old and still exclusively breast feeding. I will be expressing off for him during the day, but i have tried to feed him from a bottle over the last couple of days so he gets used to it, but he doesnt like it and just screams. i dont think he likes the taste of the teat but i dont know what to do about it. I am trying not to give in and give him my breast but i hate to see him so distressed. any ideas?

They usually say get someone else to feed with the bottle as he's used to getting boob from you, other than that I think it's just keep trying to be honest, unless you want to spend a fortune trying lots of different bottles!

Although I'm sure I've read on here some girls moving onto cups as babies wouldn't take bottles x

I agree with Tinks, LO will smell the milk off you, it would be better off for someone else to try.

And I also have heard ppl talk about sippy cups, duno if it worked or not.

Good luck
