Hello to all! I am in dire need of some advice here...
I looove nursing our little guy and he loves it too. So much that since we introduced a bottle of my pumped milk at 3 weeks, he has yet to take it without a serious battle at 10 weeks. I have had to teach a dance class WHILE breastfeeding him
I managed, but it would have been nice if he had taken a bottle from one of the many helpers that I had.
We have tried:
ALL sorts of nipples, anything I can find, I buy in hopes that he will like one.
Tricking him by giving him the boob and then slipping the bottle in there (this works occasionally)
Milk at all different temperatures
Me leaving the room and his papa giving the bottle.
At this point I am just at a loss for ideas and frustrated because I am not planning on being away from him that much, but I am supposed to go to my mom's bridal shower next week and we are supposed to take her "out on the town". My mom is going through some really tough stuff right now (fiancé has cancer) and I really want to be there for her, but I just can't stomach the thought of my little guy screaming all night with his papa.
