I'll be starting back up with nursing school in January, so I'm trying to get a head start on getting Alex to take a bottle. I've tried daily for the past week. At first, all he'd do was chew on it & gag. Now he'll chew, gag, suck on it for .02 seconds, and gag again. I guess it's a start.
But I've tried different nipples, different bottles, different people, me being gone.... Nothing helps. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to get him to stop gagging on it so much? I should have listened to my own advice and given him a bottle every other day from 6 weeks on. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to pump and now we're paying for it!
