how do i get my daughter to start taking bottles she's definitely a biter
I had quite the battle with this. I found the doctor brown bottles work. Also I dad is in the picture have him start introducing the bottle without you home. The baby can smell you up to twenty feet away. Also pump fresh milk and give that to the baby in a bottle. All these thing combined helped get my daughter to start taking the bottle. She now get four bottles a day.
I 2nd what Kim said, maybe try someone else first. She sees you and will think to go straight to your chest. She'll think differently with someone else. And welcome!! :)
Also if she fights the bottle don't just give the boob right away. You should wait like 20 min... Also don't wait to long for a feeding the bottle baby will be really mad if they are too hungry and u give them just a bottle.
thank you all so much for the warm welcome and it has been so hard trying to give her the bottle she just gets so fussy or she starts biting the bottle nipple and wont eat.
