Help! I have been exclusively breast feeding my now 6 month old. I have pumped milk and returned back to work today. She stayed home with daddy all day! It was the first time we have ever been apart! She would not take a bottle at all! She would scream and cry and start sweating until she would fall asleep from exhaustion! I'm upset knowing she has gone all day without food! On too of it all my husband blames me for her not taking a bottle! He has argued with me all night how I should have been feeding her with a bottle from the beginning. I've been researching online and it seems as if it's happened to a lot of moms! Please help me find the best way for my baby princess to take a bottle!

I tried one sippy cup and she loves the cup but she just chews on it she won't drink from it. She eats puréed food at least once a day. And today I was away for almost 9 hours but on busier days it could be 10! I am considering only doing part time! I honestly only work for the insurance and benefits.

Will she take a sippy cup? Is she eating solids yet? How long are you away from her when you go to work? Do you HAVE to work (probably a silly question, but I have to ask it)?
