I am nursing my six month old daughter. I pump while at work for her feeding for the next day at Grandma's. She has never had a problem taking a bottle. Last week I was on vacation and she didn't have a bottle. Now that she is back at Grandma's she won't take an afternoon bottle (she has cereal in the morning) but is refusing the bottle. Is she ready to give up the afternoon bottle or is she not taking it because she only nursed last week?Answer Question

Now that she is eating solids she may not need bottles while you are gone. She may be able to eat solids while you are at work and then nurse when you are together. This is called reverse cycle feeding.
Breastfed babies don't need cereal. Cereal was invented to get iron in bottle fed babies. It is high in carbohydrates and breastfed babies don't need the carbs. The first solids usually recommended are bananas, sweet potato, and avocato. Your baby can self feed rather than be spoonfed.
