my 3 month old son exclusively breastfeeds.. i'm going somewhere in a week where I'll have to leave him with a family member (who has a 5 month old girl) for about 4 hours. He eats ever 3... problem: he wont take a binkie or bottle, he screams bloody murder every time i've tried. I've tried it at different moods and different nipples. I'm afraid my SIL will have a horrific time trying to watch him. I plan on still breasfeeding for another 2-3 months. Any suggestions on how I can get the little guy to tolerate a bottle every once in a while?

They make a special breast feeding cup. Some babies like this better http://www.ccmckids.org/programs/breastfeeding_cupfeeding.asp I would not leave the baby with anyone unless you have a way established that they can feed them. Here is a cup they reccomended at class http://www.foleycup.com/
