4mo refusing to nurse during the day time- help?

I work full time and DH stays home with our 4 month old. Up until this week, she did fine switching between bottles during the day and breast in the evenings/night/weekends. Now, she will not breastfeed during the day (I am on vacation for Christmas, its been a constant struggle this week) unless I lay down with her alone and get her really calm (basically nighttime conditions.) Any suggestions? we are flying in two days, and if this continues, we are going to have to pump and bottle feed all through the airport

My Mood:
She's probably accustomed to being able to look about etc with the bottle - too distracted to nurse.

You can try a nursing necklace or something to keep her attention on you.
