Has anybody on here dealt with reverse cycling? My baby is going 8 hours during the day without taking the bottle of expressed breastmilk even though it is offered several times, but then she cluster feeds every 2-3 hours all evening and night. Is there a way to get this changed where she will take the bottle during the day better so I can get a little more sleep at night?

I don't have any experience with reverse cycling, but I can point you in the direction of some information on it: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/normal/reverse-cycling.html
Also check the bottom of the page for a few more links.

Def check out that link

THeres not much I can suggest, except to try different nipples, and even try syringe or finger feeding, maybe even cup feeding (from a small cup such as a medicine cup).

Otherwise - do you have a way to be able to go and nurse on your lunch break?

Things will get easier as time goes by. When baby gets hungry enough shell take a bottle, she wont starve herself thats for sure Seems these types of things usually just work themselves out on their own.

One other thing - my daughter was very finicky about the temperature of her milk & all kinds of stuff. If anything was even "slightly off" shed reject it all together. I dont know who is watching your little one - but I would check to see what temp theyre heating it up to, etc.
