I have a 2month old baby and I just turned 20 and in January I'm starting college again for full time. I've been breastfeeding her and she wakes up every 2 to 3 hours during the night to eat and I get so exausted..I can't do it when college starts and I was wanting to give her formula just during the night. I live w my parents so they could help me. But I started tryin to get her to do formula and she hates it and won't take it..she has a sensitive stomach too so I tried the similac sensitive and she refuses it..what could I do to get her to take it..

Hello, i am at college also and with out sleep you will struggle.
3 Points:
1, try different bottles the teat variation us because different babies require different teats, my girl refused expensive widenecks but is fine on slim necked bottles
2, express into a bottle, get baby use to the bottle whilat keeping a familiar tasteand smell
3, A baby wont starve themselfs, so Persist and be strong

All the best
