My son is almost 12 weeks old and EBF. I have to go back to work in 6 weeks, so we are trying to introduce the bottle since I'll be gone for 5 1/2 hours. The problem is... HE HATES THE BOTTLE! He flat out refuses to take it. He screams and screams. We've tried Avent, cheap Gerber, and Tommee Tippee bottles. We've tried me not being home, me being home, wrapping him in a shirt of mine, everything we can think of!! I'm so frustrated and worried that he's going to scream the whole time that I'm gone. My hubby already feels like Malcolm hates him because he cries every time Daddy holds him. It's even worse when I'm gone. My hubby is feeling very inadequate.
Please give me suggestions, advice, anything that might help!!
