I would be encouraging your husband to get any job so that you can be home with your baby.
In regards to not taking the bottle, are you trying to give the bottle or someone else?
I have found that if I had been breastfeeding and then tried to bottlefeed, baby wouldn't take it from me as they could smell my milk. Try having someone else give the bottle without you even in the room.
Are you trying to formula feed or using expressed breastmilk?

Have you gone back to work so soon because you have to or you want to?

I know this seems very forward so I apologize in advance. Were you breast feeding her before you started working.? If so you can mix your breast milk and formula and warm it up. I had to do that for our son, he wasn't eating well bottle feeding or breast feeding then when we mixed it and had the bottle warm he ate with no problem. I mean the bottle had to be super warm and til this day he has to have milk that way. I have a niece that has to have ice in her milk. Every child is different just need to see what your little one likes. It may be the bottle too. If you were breast feeding I would recommend a breast feeding bottle or a firmer nipple on the bottle. Hope that helps. Don't lose hope there is always a solution:)
