I urgently need advice as I'm at my wits end trying to solve this dilemma. I've got to undergo surgery sometime soon and might be hospitalised for 3-4 days, and am trying to get my 8 month-old baby girl to switch to the bottle. She's breastfed and is on solids 3 times a day. I've tried giving her formula but she simply refuses the bottle and goes into a screaming fit! Poor thing, I can't really blame her, but need to do this as its really necessary. Can I give her anything else other than formula as it smells & tastes so nasty? Is soy milk a good alternative? Please help. . Has anyone been through this? Any advice would be really helpful.
