My baby is 5.5 mo old and always took a bottle just fine. All of a sudden he completely denies it. He'll scream LITERALLY all day until I get home and nurse him. Doctor says it's behavioral but I have to go into work so what do I do? He is teething but even giving Tylenol doesn't help so I don't think it's that he can't bite down on bottle. Tried EVERYTHING... warming nipple... cooling nipple... had nanny hold him like I do when feeding... had nanny cover herself with shirt that smells like me... even tried forcing him to eat by squirting milk in his mouth from a medicine syringe... that kind of worked but a lot of milk was lost and he is probably swallowing a lot more air this way and it's VERY hard to do. I was successful with this but nanny was not so far. Help!!
