I need help... My infant is 1month and 20days old and since brith he's been talking the breast and now I wanna go back to work I'm afraid to leave with anyone ... I'm a new mommy and I try at least two times a day with store brought or popular bottle brands and nothing works he wouldn't even take pacifiers at brith or now ...and I recently notice he would take the bottle from anyone in my family. So far I've tried three different bottles & nothing is working .... Please help I will take any suggestions.Thanks !

Have someone else offer him the bottle. While you are holding him the breast is right there.
I wish you luck as my first son would never take a bottle from anyone.
I had to leave him up to 7 hours a day for college and he would not take a bottle.
Because I was busy in class I couldn't pump while away from him, so when I got home I was engorged and had to pump then nurse him. It worked he did fine.
Perhaps having him close by for breaks so you can nurse him in the middle of the day.
