Ok, I need help. I have tried just about everything I know to do. My husband is getting out of the military in about a month and my son and I have moved to our home state to help our family get settled before my husband moves up here. My son will not take a bottle, and he is so fussy when I am not around. I have been a stay at home mom since his birth and have exclusively breast fed him since his birth he is now six months old. My son used to take a bottle from me and anyone until one day my husband was in the hospital with possible appendicitis and we let a woman we know watch him from about 2 o'clock in the afternoon until 1:30 in the morning. Ever since that day he refuses a bottle and a pacifier and he screams murder and fights when you try to give him either one. He even cries just when he sees a bottle. I want to ask her what she did to my son. Now my husband is getting out of the military and I must, must go to work because we do not have enough finances and my son won't eat out of a bottle. I have tried just about everything I have read and nothing is working. I have tried a multiple of different nipples, different bottles, have had dad try to feed him, friends, family members, I have tried a sippy cup, a spoon, even a syringe. And also when I am not around he is so so so fussy and cries and screams, my family members don't want to even watch him. I just don't know what to do. Please help!!
