My daughter is almost 6 months old, and I'm attempting to wean her from breast to bottle. My problem? I have used the bottle with her before, but ever since we started eating baby food, she won't take a single bottle.
I waitress a few days a week, and my mom had been watching her. She would feed her, but wouldn't even attempt to give her a bottle I found out, saying she "didn't want it." She would try to give her the bottle, and after only one attempt, she would say she didn't want it. It's very irritating to me, because now all she knows is eating from the breast.
When I try to give her a bottle, she will look at it, put it in her mouth for a second, and then get push it away.
I have looked up tips on the net about weaning, but I figured I'd ask my CM friends first! Please, any ideas would be great! And also, if anyone disagrees with me weaning her so soon, please do not respond. This is my own personal choice and I hope everyone can respect that. (There are moms around where I live that are RELIGIOUS about breastfeeding, and I totally support that. But I don't want to BF more than a year at the most, and am hoping to quit now.)
Please..any advice please throw my wayyyy! Thank you!
