I'm sitting for a sweet precious lil 3 month old . Her momma leaves bottles for me. Well I have absolute heck getting her started & or restarted w/ bottles. She takes bottle with only slight effort & virtually no protest from her daddy & my hubby . I do nothing different than they do but she gets pretty mad pretty quickly when I try. My hubby thinks its because she is a BF baby & smells my milk ( my 14 month old still breastfeeding ) any advice ,opinions etc?

Your husband is probably right! Just continue to offer.

That could be. My daughter will not take a bottle of pumped breastmilk from me or my female friend who also breastfeeds. My daughter will attack my arm or shirt and start snorting lol. But she will take a bottle from my 5 year old and for her grandma.

might try having the mom wear a shirt put a rag under her breasts at night and let you wear the shirt or  put rag by babies face while you give her the bottle might just be because she knows you are not momma

I think she smells your milk and just wants to nurse.

I agree. I was sitting for a baby girl for a while and had the same problem...she would actually try to latch on over my shirt! Eventually she got over it. :-)

You could talk to the mom and offer to nurse her if you're both comfortable with it.

I had a similar problem, and solved it by nursing the babe ( at moms's suggestion). ;)
