View Full Version : Bottle/Sippy Cup/Solid refusal and going back to work

DS will be 7.5 months old when I start back to school. He refuses everything but the breast. I'm trying not to push him but I don't want him to starve with the sitter. My schedule is flexible and I can leave to feed him IF I can find somewhere nearby to watch him. I'm just worried. :cry:

DD refuses everything as long as she knows I am home. When I am at work she is not happy about it but she takes a bottle (playtex with dropins). I keep her on the slow flow nipple so she wont get used to it being so easy to suck and have trouble going back to the breast.
Anyway ... have you tried a test run where you leave the house and see if he takes it when he knows you arent there?

I'm sorry :( We have the same problem with my 9 mo. old dd. However she will take water from a straw cup but nothing else.

I hope that you can work something out.
