Reverse cycling is when the baby refuses to eat when they are away from momma during the day (usually when mom is at work) and then makes up for it by nursing all evening/night.

Taylor is mostly over it now, we've gotten her to take most bottles. But it took the ComoTomo bottle to get her to do it. It's flexible so DH could squeeze it to stimulate a letdown and she could taste the milk and understand that it was time to eat. She's still only taking 7.5-9 oz while I'm gone for 10+ hours, and I'd like to have her at 10-12. She's been waking an extra time at night and mommy is TIRED!

ETA: We tried sooo many bottles, NUK, Playtex Ventaire, Dr. Browns, Breastflow, Mimijumi, and the ComoTomo. I had 3 others in my Amazon shopping cart if those still didnt' work, the MOmma, Tommee Tippee, and the Adiri. I'm just so glad she's taking bottles though, she'll even take a paci now sometimes.
