Bottle help.. I'm so mad for her!! -- WE GOT IT!!
We found a bottle Abrianna will take about mid August. We heathed her milk up in a pot of water on the stove and gave it to her in an Advanced Orthodontic Nuk. I stayed out of sight and she drank the whole 2 ounces for daddy.
She started daycare 2 weeks later because I went back to nursing school. She'd take a bottle here and there, then totally started refusing. I thought maybe she was on a strike because I'm gone, but surely she'd get hungry and take it. Nope. We've tried the Nuks, Avents, Dr Brown, Evenflo, Mam and it's still a no go!
I talk to her providers everyday when I pick her up. I rock and nurse her and converse with them. I finally asked how they hold her and they hold her correctly for a BF baby. Then they told me that they do NOT heat up her milk and let it get to room temperature then give it to her. The bottle goes from the fridge, sits out a little and they give it to her! She refuses these bottles that she took for daddy now.
Does she associate these bottles with cold milk now? She was fussy the first week of daycare and I assumed it was because she was still adjusting, could she have had a tummy ache from cold milk?
Help me find a bottle, please!
We've been so busy I forgot to update my post! The weekend after I posted this I had daddy give her a bottle. She'll now take frozen mix straight from the bottle with no issues, but it was to be VERY warm. What a picky gal!
