anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

With DS I tried 1 maybe 2 times when we went out and left him with my Mom but he never took it, so we just were gone between feedings. THe reason I'm asking is I just returned all my AVENT bottles and breast pump kit due to the BPA thing and I have store credit, but I just don't see myself using a bottle with this baby either.

Am I crazy to not have a single bottle in my house? I mean I know that I never used them with DS. Should I just wait and see how things go? I just could use that money for so many other things.

Totally not crazy mama We never used a bottle with DD, except for the first day she was in the nicu and they wouldn't let me nurse. She nursed for almost 2.5yrs without a single bottle and I never even gave it a second thought or worried about it.

Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

My mama never used a bottle on the four of us. None the worse for it...I'm sad that after four months of pumping and trying to nurse my preemie twins, I had to give in and switch to bottles. Good for you if you never have to touch a bottle!

No bottles here. The next baby won't have one either.

Not crazy, baby #2 for us never had a bottle ever. He would take sips of water from a sippy cup at about 8mths. Other than that he was all me

Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

thanks, I guess I just needed some reassurance that I'm not crazy. With DS, when he was ready to be weaned he just used a sippy cup. It was great, there was never any getting rid of the bottle.

As for the breast pump, I'm going to wait and see if I need to rebuy that too. I mean I can always manually express if I'm desparate right? It seemed so silly that I bought this breast pump and used it like 5 times.

Us too. We never used a bottle.
DD refused it. I just had to come home (I was still in school), every few hours so she could nurse.
You don't need to have a bottle in the house.
