I was suppose to return to work today, but after weeks of trying we have not been able to get my almost 4 month old (on 1-12) baby to take a bottle. She has been EBF since birth and does not take a pacifier. I have pumped and my husband, neighbors, and friends have all tried to give my baby a bottle with no success. We have bought and tried at least 10 different types of bottles, tried at all hours of the day, warmed the nipple, squeezed it in her mouth, and I have left the room. None of those options have yielded success. My boss has graciously allowed me more time off work, but I would like to figure something out in the next 2 months. I do not want to stop breastfeeding by any means. I am wondering if the sippy cup is an option. I am wondering if anyone else has done this or experienced the same problem.
