My daughter is almost 9 weeks old and is exclusively breast fed. I waited until she was 3 weeks old to introduce the bottle for fear of nipple confusion. She was not confused at all because she wanted nothing to do with it. We tried for about a week and pretty much gave up. Last week I decided to try again so I went out and bought every bottle I could find --- even that one that looks like a boob. We've tried a few different ones but she just won't take it. She screams her head off and gets super mad. I'm not even in the room --- either my husband or my mom is giving it to her. We've tried when she's super hungry and when she's not real hungry. In the beginning of a nursing session and in the middle of a session. I'm going back to work in 8 weeks so I have to get this under control. Is anyone else having these issues? Any suggestions? How many times should I do it with the same bottle before trying a new one? HELP!!!
