Re: Any tips for getting baby to take bottle? for just one day?

i would nurse right before you leave and leave the bottle for DH. The baby make take enough if she is hungry to hold her till you get home or she may surprise you and take the whole bottle for DH. Since you are only going to be gone about 5 hours i wouldn't stress too much.

What type of bottle have you tried? For me all three of my kiddos will only drink out of wide nipple bottles. DS1 was picky and after trying many different ones the playtex wide nipple (either ventaire or drop ins) is all he would take. i didn't try anything different for the other two. I also WOH so bottles are a necessary and we start at 3 weeks.

OT my neice who is 6 just had her tonsils and adnoids out and she did great and been a pretty easy recovery for her.
