I started feeding my daughter by bottle when I went back to work. For two weeks it was really hard. She would cry and cry and cry but when she got hungry enough she'd eventually take it. My doctor said it takes time to adjust. She might go a little longer without eating because she doesn't want the bottle. I wish you luck. Just stick to it. If she won't adjust there's bottle that are called natural feeders that are shaped to be just like breastfeeding texture and everything. I'd try those. Good luck.

I would start off with getting a couple different types of bottles to see what ones she takes the best. Use all breast milk to start, then start adding formula to it, little more each time. Hopefully you are able to get her to take the bottle. You may have to try a couple different bottles. I have heard that the playtex drop-ins are very similar to the nipple. When I went back to work, I use playtex, but not the drop-ins. My son took right to it, but all children are different. Good luck!
