my son is 4 and a half months old and is breastfed. i want to be able to leave him for 3 hours once a week to go to a dance class, but he will not take a bottle. its almost like he does`not know how to take it. he rolls it around in his mouth and any little drips he gets out of it, he spits it out.. he refuses to take anything but skin. no dummy, no teether, just fingers or breast.
I have tried different bottles with different teets, expressed breastmilk, formula and even juice!
other people have tried to feed him so that he doesnt get the smell from me, we've tried feeding him in his bouncer, but NOTHING seems to work.
has anyone else had this problem?
ive started introducing some solids, he seems ok with a spoon if he does it himself, but thats it.
im going crazy because he is within 10 meters of me at all times, wanting to feed every hr and a half -2 hours! lol!
please if anyone has any ideas on how to get him to take a bottle it would be really appreciated!
