Post subject: Refusing the bottle
My name is Mwape.
My Baby is now 4 months old and it's time to go back to work,she refuses to drink expressed milk from the bottle how will she survive the whole day without feeding? everyone is telling me to start her on light porridge so she stay full but she should take it with breast milk right?

R u offering milk in a bottle? Try offering in a feeding cup. Its a sloped cup and bf babies find it quite easy to go from breast to cup. Worth a try before going to porridge. Also, r u offering the edxcpressed milk or someone else? Is easier for baby if someone else as baby can smell your milk so often would rather nurse than drink from bottle or other receptical. Maybe set a feed each day wherre you go out and partner does? In this way kind of they have to Gert used to it.
Hope u Gert there, it's not easy. Def try all u cash befgoire food. If baby seermsd ready for food give but otherwise would delay for longer if poss.
