My story is a little complicated, my almost 5 month old has always been Breast fed but the first 2 months I gave him a bottle with formula, no Breast milk in the bottle, but when I have him formula it was when we would go out. I then decided I didn't want to give him formula any more and just exclusively Breast feed since I'm a stay at home mom right now and I'm never away from him, but what I didn't realize is that I do need days off and sometimes I wish he could be babysat and me not have to breast feed him. So I forgot about that and one day I tried the bottle of formula like 3 weeks later and he completely denied it. He denies any nipple beside mine. I'm getting really stressed because I need him to take the bottle in order for me to gain my sanity back. I love him so much but sometimes I do need a break. I don't pump because I tried doing that and sat there and nothing came out, even though I know I have a big and fast supply. Please mommies I'm in desperate need of help or advice. I plan on going back to work in a couple weeks as well and that's going to be hell for whoever has to babysit and for my baby if he doesn't take the bottle.
