Help, advice, tips...?

Gabby has just started this problem in the past 2 weeks. If I work several days in a row we have nursing issues after. I think she gets used to the bottle, and when I try to nurse her after I get home she screams for 20mins. Any advice or reassurance would be greatly appreciated.

How is day care giving bottles? Are you going with the 3-4 oz every 3-4 hour rule? Are they feeding her within 2 hours of you picking her up?

How often how big and what flow nipples with the bottles? Are they burping every oz? Any bottles at home? Any solids? If so are they before or after nursing?

SO is home with her during the week. He gives about 4oz every 4 hours or so. At times he does, but before she used to want to nurse as soon as I got home even if she just ate.

No solids yet. It's the small bottles with slow flow nipples. I will have to check with him about the Burping.

How old? when baby is having a hard time nursing do you offer a bottle or sippy cup instead?

She will be 4 months on the 26th, and no I don't offer them. I just try to calm her and try again. We get through it and she nurses, it just is an awful feeling to hear her scream for 20min.

Any signs of teething? That would be my suspicion! :)
