I need her to badly right now. She is still ebfing, she isn't able to eat solids yet due to tummy issues. She has always refused to take anything but the tap, even syringe feedings were a no go. I've tried every cup and bottle. Tried having someone else feed her while I wasn't there, I've done all I can think to do!!!! I need her OFF my boob for a while. Its like super emergency.

No way to force her. You can offer. Some will take it right away others wont for a while.

All you can do is hand her off, go do what you need to. Expect she'll refuse. There's no way to get an infant to do something they don't want to, you can only offer.

No no nothing like that. Something bad happened Saturday and it has my ptsd going hay wire. Her nursing is causing flashbacks and crap. Idk why it is, I guess just where it happens to be a trigger point for me :( I really just need some space and a break from it so I can avoid the issues its causing.

Just hand off baby and sippy. baby likely won't take it while your around. your going to need to pump every 2-3hrs, to keep supply and avoid mastitis.

Time for mom to stage a short escape, then. Often the problem is merely mom being around. If she's really really hungry she'll take what's offered.

Yea I will tonight after she is down for the count. I just really wish I didn't have to feed her and I know that sounds awful and mean but I cry every single time and I hate the way its making me feel. I love bfing her, I really hope these issues pass quickly before any long term damage ks done to our nursing relationship. I know she can sense something is wrong because she is acting like she is stressed.
