Please help any advice would be great!!! My 14 week old daughter will sometimes refuse the bottle. I am nursing her at home and she is getting breast milk in her bottles. She is on Zantac for acid reflux. But it is weird she will go days doing great with the bottle then she will just all of a sudden refuse to take it! I have been back to work since 8 weeks. And we have been battling this since then. I just was wondering if any other mom's have had this same issue? If anyone has any tips or advice they would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!

What kind of bottles do you use? Have you tired changing bottles? It might help. We used Tommie Tippe and a Dr. Browns bottles my son didn't have any issues with thoses. Good luck hope it gets better

I started with the Avent bottles then we changed to Dr Brown cause she was super gassy. I have the right size nipples for her age.

She may just do what's called "reverse cycling" where they don't take much while away from you and then nurse a lot when you are together. It is very normal, and as long as she still goes through 6 diapers per day, with soaked and poop counting as 2, she is going to be ok.
You can also have the caregiver give her the milk using a medicine syringe, a small medicine cup or a spoon.

It's normal. Some babies just don't like bottles. Caregiver can try a medicine dropper/syringe, small open cup, sippy cup with or without the inside valve removed. Some babies just refuse to eat anything while mom is away, that's called reverse cycling and that's also normal. :)

I'm guessing bump is used to bump a post up in the page. Please let me know it I'm right. Thanks!

 Mom's write bump when they read your post but have no advice so other mom's can read it and give you more replies/opinions/advice : )
