Breastfeeding madness!!!

I am now and a mother of 4 and my youngest is 4.5 months. I am breastfeeding and would love to return to work but my son WILL not take a bottle, for me or anyone else. Has anyone else had this problem? If so what did you do?

 I did with my oldest son. He wouldn't take a bottle for anything. Part of the problem for me was that breastfeeding went well and was no problem, but I couldn't pump to save my life, so I was trying to give him formula in the bottle and he didn't like the taste. A friend told me that goat's milk is supposed to be a little closer to human milk. I started trying him on a little warm goat's milk (there's a store near here that sells is pasteurized) and lucky for me he liked it and caught on to the whole bottle thing!

I'm 0 for 3 when it comes to bottles.  I didn't even try with baby #3 but with my oldest I was able to get him to drink out of a sippy cup every now and then when he was 6 mo. I have heard that some babies do better drinking out of a cup than a bottle. Good luck!
