My niece had her baby in January and I know she's due to go back to work sometime in April. She IS breastfeeding and she is pumping, but she can't get her to take a bottle. She doesn't think there is any nipple confusion, but that her baby girl just doesn't want the bottle (she'll suck for a minute or two but then just throw a fit and refuse to take anymore). Any advice that I can pass along to her that might help her? She also had acid reflux her first few weeks, but my niece says that's not a problem anymore.
Update: 4/7/11 - Still no luck with her unfortunately. She won't even eat if my niece is not around and she's now gone back to work so she comes home to feed her, but her doctor says to lengthen the time between feedings and see if that helps. But she's also being sent to a specialist to see if there are other issues going on as to why she won't drink from a bottle (she can my niece says, she just won't).
