any way to make my nine month old take a bottle or sippy???

Posted by   + Show Post
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.

Mommy needs to be healthy. Just leave her with a sippy. My kiddos prefered the Nuk ones initially. She will not starve. She may not like the sippy but if shes hungry she'll take it.

Seriously mama you need a mommy break. You need to deal with you. Can you see a specialist to help you sort through your feelings and flashbacks?

Quoting mitty18:

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.

Yea, I know. I may do thataa when hubby gets home. She has a couple soft spout nuk cups.


I was doing fine til the events Saturday. Since then I just have gone downhill. I may end up looking into some help if things don't settle back down. I really don't want to deal with people right now so I'm hoping I can handle this myself.

I understand the not wanting to deal with people thing-I'm the kind of person who thinks they can carry the world on their shoulders ;)

Just be careful and tread lightly. You've got to know when to give in and take help before it gets to late and your drowning. There are medications that are safe while breastfeeding if you needed to that route. Mommys health is most important here. Theres even crisis hotlines that can help over the phone if you need to.

Yea, I know. I don't think this requires medication. I mean they can give stuff for the depression and anxiety but not to prevent flashbacks and memories. I'm not in a crisis yet, I will seek help before then.
