i have tried everything but alas my son will not take a bottle. he is very much a boob boy. i have tried to put breast milk into a bottle, bought every style of bottle under the sun, even one thats shaped like a boob! it is frustrating for my husband that i cant even go out and get my nails done. he will scream and cry but will not drink a bottle. he has started solids and loves them, but he will not drink formula or even boob juice in a bottle. is there any way to make bottle feeding any easier on him?
i in no way want to stop breast feeding i love it in every way, but he is getting teeth and i am soo scared for my boobs once one breaks through! i dont know if once he has a mouth full of teeth it if will be able to bare the pain of getting bit, what happens if i have to give him bottles....
and an added bonus would be being able to go out for a small break and have my hubby feed him, the look in his eyes when he realizes he cant feed his son is heart breaking...
