Re: EBF baby won't take

After a week of trying, my lo refused the bottle, would break down into tears and dh was stressed out about it. We gave everyone a two week vacation and then had my sister give the bottles, since she was more experienced. The first time my sister gave it, my lo did the same thing of playing with the nipple and smiling. My sister just kept taking the bottle back out and reoffering until my lo took it. After a few days of success, my husband was also able to give the bottle.

My lo is still picky. She won't take the bottle well if I was just around, so I have to gone and out of the house before she is hungry for her to really take the bottle. I was able to give her an ounce once, but I had to carry her around and bounce her.

Good luck!
