I am a breastfeeding mom of a 7 month old that is going back to work soon. My little one refuses anything out of the bottle. breast milk and formula included. I've tried her with solids but she refuses to eat. I've also tried making my mom and husband feed her when i am not in the house and still no luck. any suggestions?

yeah i get that way to and i have two kids lol hey you worked hard to get them why not haha my baby likes grilled cheese , pees, carrots top roman have not feed her a food yet she dont like , that reminds me when you feed your baby soft food or the formula is it warm or cold or ??? the reason i ask is with my baby she will NOT drink her bottle warm she drinks it better and faster when its been in the frigg and same with the baby food she dont like it warmed up i know it sounds weird but that my little baby but she likes everything else warmed but most she dont care

Ive statted leaving hwr the time I would leave for work and pick her up the time I eoukd be honme. I give her cereals, arrow root cookies,chesse etc and sge seems to.play with it I have her sut with us at meal time so she sees everyone else eating.ive aldo realised she doesnt like anything too doft and mushy. My mom says I worry too much so we'll see how this goes. Thanks for all the great ideas!!

that could be yes,, hey have you been getting her ready for you going back to work?? like you leave her with someone and you go do things and come back?? and what kind of food have you given her?? just baby or ???? cause my baby girl although is 10 months she didnt like the baby food much after 7 months to me the baby food dont teach them how to really eat its so soft like thick milk lol have you gone to like walmart and got the baby cereal snacks they look like stars the baby can them up or the rise crackers for them?? i know if she did like them there not like eatting a dinner but its a start, and r you feeding her in a high chair or on ur lap?? if you put her in a chair chair three times a day around the same time every day and she has to sit there for 10 minutes she might get the point that eatting is good,, and no its never to early to teach her this haha and maybe show her u eat to , i meet this one women that said her baby never would eat and come to find out that she never ate around her baby so the baby only saw the mama drink just a thought babys r so smart haha sorry i jump around i get to talkin and thoughts race through my head haha hope this helps

well i would say you'd have to stop breast feeding like cold turkey if your going back to work the baby will not starve it self and if your mom or husband trys to feed the baby without you home well im sure your baby knows you'll come back to feed her and try a sippy cup, my baby girl was 6 months when i gave her one ( the soft tip ones ) buy like 2 kinds and but half water half juice see if she'd like it she should cause its sweat my baby did and about the bottle have you treid different nipples?? you know theres SOOO many out there and the flow she might not like that either try getting nipples that have a faster flow it took me 4 different nipples to get the one that my other kid would like haha i have a 10year old son and a 10 month old girl take it one day at a time but again you need to pick if your gonna breast feed or bottle feed its harder on the baby if you dont pick your self you tell the baby what you want lol i know its hard
