Post subject: Breast to bottle
My baby boy is nearly 7 months now and solely breast fed which is now starting to be a problem. I'm due to go back to work in 3 weeks and I've been trying with no success to get him onto bottles for when I'm not there. I've tried every bottle out there I think but be refuses to drink from any of them. Running out of time now and worried he won't get enough milk whilst I'm at work.
Any suggestions mummy's

My daughter struggled to latch on when she was first born - so I expessed and used bottles until she managed to latch at 5 weeks old. After that I avoided expressing and using bottles cause it brought back bad memories (silly I know!)
Now she wont take milk in a bottle (she'll drink water) so I introduced a sippy cup at about 4 months and now she is pretty good with it.
I also find she really doesn't like the taste of frozen milk, so I have to express and use it from the fridge.
