I had been exclusively breastfeeding my son till he was around 3 months old, my husband and I decided we needed to try and get him to take bottles of expressed milk as well so it could give us a little more freedom so we would be able to leave him with a sitter or that dad could feed once in a while to give me a little break, he is four months now and about two weeks ago he just completely stopped wanting to nurse he just starts screaming anytime I try. Any advice on how I can get him to nurse and take bottles of expressed milk?

I don't know what to say sorry about that. All I can say is breast feed out of the bottle still. He also may be outgrowing the stage if breast feeding

He still takes breast milk out of a bottle so I dont think it would be a lactose issue, he simply is refusing to nurse and screams anytime I offer a breast. I would like to continue nursing but also be able to give him a bottle when needed.

My mom was like this when she was a little girl that was a LONG tome ago anyway they found out she was lactose intolerant which means she can't really have dairy. That may be the problem with your son.
