I was wondering when and how did you do it ? How did you wean the baby off the breast and how did you get her or him to get on the bottle? My 3 month old wont even take breastmilk from a bottle.. As much as i try she refuses ? any advice?? I have a program to do and She only likes to be on the breast but i need her on the bottle..I pump it out and put it in the bottle and she still dont want it..i tried different nipples even nipples that look like a breast!

Have someone else try and feed from the bottle. Baby knows when mom is trying to fool them and won't take it- my ds is like that anyways. So I'd start with someone else introducing the bottle and when she starts taking it then you can attempt bottle feeds.

I didn't wean mine. She got bottles of my milk while I worked because it was that or starve. Mine wouldn't take a bottle if I was around.

Do you want to exclusively pump? What's your plan?

My DD LOVES Gripe water, so we put just a little Gripe Water in her mouth, and when she starts suckling on that to swallow it, we pop the bottle in then she realizes she gets milk from the bottle and drinks

Hand baby and bottle to caregiver and leave. Done. That's it. Nothing more. If you're around the bottle is bound to be refused. The chance of refusal drops when you walk out the door. HOWEVER... Many babies will quite happily wait till mom comes home. Not a problem either. It's called reverse cycling and is completely normal.
