Just wondering, for those of you who are BF, if you've tried giving your LO a bottle yet, and if so how it went.
I was beginning to get pretty depressed about the fact that Vi refused to take one. We had some Playtex Drop-Ins from when my older DD was a baby, and I bought new nips for them, but Vi was just NOT having any part of them, no matter who fed her. I would feel terrible any time I had to run out somewhere without her - doc appointment, hair cut, whatever - and I knew that when I got home she'd be screaming, sweaty, and covered in spit-up from being so worked-up, poor thing. I decided to buy a Dr. Brown's bottle, which my friend recommended, but DH wasn't having any luck with that one either. (Though, to be honest, he's not very patient and gave up after only 5 minutes.:rolleyes:) Anyway, I got so desperate that I put her in the swing and knelt down behind it myself, reached around with the bottle... and she took it! She drank the whole thing (well, you know, all 2oz...). That was with EBM. So the next day, I tried 2oz of formula, and she took that too! Oh, I am sooooooo relieved! And the next day, my mom tried giving her the Dr. Brown's bottle, and she took it from her too. Hooray!! :pinkelephant: I'm still nursing almost exclusively, but it's SO nice to have the option to use a bottle, you know? Anyway, I'm totally psyched.
