Bottle Strike?

My son is almost 4 months and this weekend he has decided he no longer will take a bottle. He screams bloody murder if we put it in his mouth. All he will do is breastfeed... which is fine when I am home, but I have to go to work tomorrow! I don't know what I should do. We tried all the kinds of nipples we have in the house (breastflow -his usual bottle-, avent, platex, standard nipple) he won't even try to suck. Daddy tried to cup feed him even (it didn't go over very well) he finally put him in the tub, his FAVORITE spot and he took a bottle there... but tomorrow he can't be in the tub all day!
I think he might be teething and I gave him Tylenol and teething tablets, and it didn't any good.

Any suggestions?

  • My guy does this occasionally. When this happens, we walk with him, which usually quiets him down, then we can try again in a little while. Sometimes it works faster than others, but eventually he'll chill out and realize, "Ok, I can do this!" Good luck, mama, hopefully he just had a bad day or two!
