Bottle Feeding

Please advise : I am back at work after 3 Months. I started to give my baby bottle feeds when she was 2 months old . My 4 months old baby girl does not want to take her bottle feed. Even if i breast pump she refuses to take the botlle. Tried Nan formula does not want it. Only wants breast feeds. I leave home from 6 in the morning and come back at 5. I am worried. Baby looks happy .

What about giving her your expressed milk by cup instead of bottle?

You could use a normal cup or a sippy cup.

Some babies are however happy to wait for their mothers return and then make up for the time without milk by breastfeeding more at night. Some mothers even encourage this. Your baby does know that milk can come out of hte bottle, so if she was very hungry she would take it - babies don''t starve themselves. So long as its offerred frequently, she will take it when she is hungry.
