How do I wean my baby???

I'm going back to work on wednesday and I need to wean my girl from boob to bottle. I will still be using breast milk, but don't know how to get her on a couple bottles a day. I've been trying and trying to get her on a bottle and she just doesn't want it! I'm worried she won't eat until I come home after a 6 hr shift! HELP!

  • you need to let someone else give her the bottle. check with the lactation consultant at the hospital you delivered at about getting a good portable pump so you can quickly and easily pump at work. Mommies give breasts, everyone else gives bottles.
