Hi, my son is only days away from 5 months and i need some serious advice on what different methods i can use to get him to start taking a bottle.
I have pumped and stored breast milk, but i dont mind using formula. but he will NOT take a bottle.
I need advice as i am starting school in a few weeks and my husband needs to be able to feed him while im away.
Im still going to breast feed when im here, just not when im at school. It would be Ideal to have him have formula as my milk has to be heated in order to store without it going sour.i would like to cut down my milk supply to a min, and have him take formula for 2 feedings a day reg, so im not in pain when im away.
im at school Sunday for 8 hrs and Tuesday, Wed for 6 .
I also will add, he has been taking rice cerial for 4 weeks now at bed time.
