Lol yes : Thats al she does is eat table food. When i give her a sippy cup she just bites the nipple and spits the liquid out.

At a year she really doesn't need a bottle. Is she eating solids? If so, she would be fine on solids and water while you are away and to be breastfed when you are together.

sorry i guess my brain was going faster than my fingers... attempt to giver her a bottle with your warm milk in there once every time you go to breast feed... and maybe use those bottles that are supposedly "shaped like your nipples" i don't think my nipples are quite shaped that way, but maybe it might help.... but yea, just everytime you go to nurse, try the bottle first... who knows she may at some point take it.. once she gets used to it.

be patient, give her time, offer the bottle with your milk in there... make sure it's warm... it is new and will take SEVERAL attempts
