none of mine ever took bottles, not for lack of trying though. Click here to enlarge it was all good. you learn to adapt, but I also sah so that does make things easier. I don't think it has to be an all or nothing. I would try to introduce the bottle at some point just because it might be easier sometimes. I wish mine had been more receptive of it. but like i said, it worked fine, you just make adjustments.

this seems like a weird question Click here to enlarge

Kelsey refused a bottle. It drove me crazy. My biggest fear was the "what ifs" which I'm bad about thinking Click here to enlarge What if I there was an emergency and I had to be gone and she needed to eat. What if I died Click here to enlarge dh would be without a wife and have a baby who refused to eat. My problem was that she wouldn't take breastmilk out of anything, not a cup, dropper, bottle, nothing.

My second one only used a bottle if she happened to grab her cousin's when she thought I wasn't looking. Click here to enlarge

I pumped a handful of times to relieve engorgement in the beginning, but never bothered to try to feed her from a bottle. My first was in daycare and the thought of having to wash bottles again was very depressing so I wanted to steer far away from them with #2.

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.
