HELP!! returning to work and want to keep nursing my baby girl...

So my 2 mo old baby won't take a bottle for me, DH, or neighbor. I need to find a nipple thats more like a breast. What should I try??

  • I tried nuk binkies with her and she would not take it. Are they the same kind of nipples they use on their binkies?

    Those are the most like a breast that I can find. They look really pricey though...

  • Breastbottle.

    Are you ANYWHERE in the vicinity when the bottle is given? You must be GONE gone...nowhere around.

    And take comfort in this...many babies NEVER take a drop while mom is gone...and are COMPLETELY fine. It's called reverse cycling and actually is to be desired. No chance of nipple preference.

    If baby is TRULY hugnry she will eat. So stop worrying, OK? At least about this. **smile**

  • We really liked breastflow bottles.
    You could also try cup feeding her
