I WENT THROUGH THAT AT DAYCARE WITH MY SON. WHAT YOU MAY NEED TO IS PUT SOME OF YOUR MILK IN A BNOTTLE AND SUBSTITUE ONE OF HER FEEDINGS WITH THE BOTLE. RVRNTUALLY SHE WOULD REALIZE THAT SHE HAVE TO TAKE IT. FOR OTHER PEOPLE GIVE THEM SOMETHING OF YOURS THAT HAVE YOUR SCENT ON IT. HAVE THEM PUT IT ACROSS THEIR SHOULDER WHILE FEEDING HER. REMBER SHE IS NOT GOING TO STRAVE, EVENTUALLY SHE GIVE IN. WORK FOR ALL THREE OF MINES.

My son was the same, when I was out he would take a sippy cup from dad! Goodluck!

I've worked in an infant room in a daycare and we found the draping a shirt that mom wore over our shoulder worked to get the baby to take a bottle. That way they could smell mom. Or you could just try putting milk in a sippy cup or even an open cup (just go slow). Some moms even do a medicine dropper or a spoon.
