I am a breastfeeding mom, but I work. So the routine is supposed to go like this, I pump at work and the baby drinks my milk from the day before, repeat. Simple, right? Not so simple when the baby refuses any feeding mechanism besides me. We have tried all sort of bottles: Avent, Born Free, Platex, Dr. Browns, Nuk, Evenflo, Avent Sippy Cup, Nuk Sippy Cup, Straws, Cups…
Luckily we have a very patient, loving caregiver for our stubborn little man who is willing to work with us. She has tried all sorts of feeding mechanisms, positions, locations, mediums (mixing with cereals) and nada. Oliver gave us hope last week when he ate 11 oz, but then he was quite determined not to drink the next day. The thing that gets me is we now know he can eat out of a bottle, but as the La Leche League representative said, he is making a choice and we have to respect it. So our nights have been spent eating and my days have been spent sleepy…
And I thought I would just be worrying about leaching BPA. So Sleepy…
Let me know if you have any suggestions.
