Bottle Strike

Since I've returned to work Jackson has had to have bottles during the day while I'm away. (hey that rhymes!) Unfortunately he has also decided that He. Doesn't. DO. Bottles. Period. Ugh! Such a fight! He is refusing any and every bottle that comes near his mouth (and trust me, we've tried ALL of them) He also won't take a sippy cup (spouted or strawed) or a regular cup. He wants his milk straight up out of the boobie. Sigh. So Ryan has resorted to mixing 4 ounces of milk into little man's oatmeal in order to get some nutrients in him. (I don't consider solid foods a true source of nutrition yet) Fortunately Jackson LOVES him his solids and will eat oatmeal and yogurt until kingdom comes. Blah. It makes me nervous that he's getting so little breast milk during the day, but he more than makes up for it by nursing A LOT during the night. So I guess I shouldn't worry too much. Right?

That's so hard! I had one that refused bottles when I was working and it was very stressful. But you're right, he's making up for it when he's with you.

It IS hard and very stressful. I hope your little man starts taking the bottle soon!

I'm your newest follower. Can't wait to hear when he DOES start accepting the bottle. Poor mama!

Thanks so much for the help and support! I'm trying not to stress, but sometimes it gets the best of me!
