My baby now 7 weeks old. 2 weeks ago I tried the bottle with breastmilk and she did fine and then after 3 days she wouldn't even think of taking it. We keep trying but she just cries for so long and I don't want her to become dehydrated so I give her the breast - she has screamed so much she just falls asleep for at least 2 hours. I feel horrible I need to transition her but I need to go back to school to help with finances. I have tried playtex ventaire wide and standard, tommie tippee bottle, and the nuk bottle. My baby also has bad reflux if that helps anything. I have tried feeding her with the bottle and my husband has also tried many times. I have also tried the enfamil nutrimagen because the reflux gets so bad with milk, but I only tried this after trying her with the bottle with breastmilk. Please help me to get her onto the bottle - I need advice.Answer Question

Babies don't need to drink from a bottle. She can be fed your milk by finger feeder, cup, spoon, or other creative way the caretaker comes up with. If you aren't gone long she may wait for you to come home.
