My original post was moved to Breastfeeding - overcoming difficulties (not sure why!), but I wanted to give everyone an update since you were all so helpful!

Kayla took a bottle at daycare Wed, Thur and Friday of last week! Her pattern is to take 1-2 oz at a time until she gets really hungry and then sucks 6-8 at once. Holding out on feeding her until she was hungry is what did the trick!

Also - she took a bottle from my husband yesterday and today WITH me in the house! Yeah!

Yeah! My dd just started taking one from dh when I work at night. She wont let him hold her while she takes, it though. She has to lieon her back and hold it herself. Hes kind of sad about that fact.
