Hi Kristy, I have tried that. My mother in law has tried giving her the bottle when I go out the house. But she will only cry and stay hungry till I come home.

Try and get someone else to offer the bottle with you out of the house or at least the room for a good while. Bub won't take a bottle when she can see and smell you as she knows you are mum and you breastfeed her.
