I need advice! I am EBFing but since I will return to work in September, we were told by lactation consultants to get him used to the bottle now for when he goes to daycare. DH gives him a bottle of expressed milk when I go to the gym in the morning and one for his first night feeding, but getting him to take them is such a battle. He spits out the milk, cries, and won't settle. We've tried all the suggestions you can find online but they don't seem to help. I feel so bad for DH because he's such a hands-on dad and really wants to help, but Owen clearly prefers me, especially at night. I'm hoping we just need time for him to figure it out, but what if when I go back to work he refuses to eat all day and gives the daycare people hell? He's otherwise and extremely easy and mellow baby, as long as he's got the boob. Anybody have any experience with this?
