Any breastfeeding moms have a hard time transitioning to the bottle? I'm in serious need of a night off and it doesn't seem it will ever happen. I need tips please 😫 TIA

Yea and don't stress it will. Use nipple shield on your breast because those are so much like bottle nipples and it may help baby learn easier.

I know it seems like as a nursing mom all we is feed the babies but stick with it as long as you can. Sometimes when you give a baby the bottle they realize how much easier it is and then won't go back to breastfeeding it's so much easier to pull out a boob while laying in bed then to get up and make a bottle.

My lo is 4 months and she refuses the bottle since she was 2 mo. We tried every bottle out there. My mother tried several times giving her the bottle with me out of the house, and one time I was out for 4 hours. It was painful to watch her cry. We decided that we will wait until she's 6 months before I go back to work. Hopefully she'll drink from the sippy cup by then.

My LO is 11 weeks and still won't take the bottle. She takes 1-2oz while I work because she has a hard time drinking it. I only work 4-6 hr shifts right now but it's sad because when I come home she nurses for like 40 mins! It's so hard :( wish I would've introduced bottles to her from day one! Neither my girls ever got "confused" with pacifiers so I don't believe that nipple confusion stuff with the bottle. I've tried everything! My advice is just keep trying it's all you can do lol

Well my son will be four months Thursday. Breastfeeding doesn't stress me out although it can be very tiring. I just need one day or night off lol and I can't do that if he would rather starve than take the bottle (of breast milk). I'm still going to breastfeed I just need a couple hours for myself soon just for my sanity.

I am trying and I will keep trying. He had a couple bottles in the beginning but right now I'm a SAHM so I felt no need to bottle feed him. It's hard but I will keep at it ! It's hard to get a breather with my mommas boy who won't take a bottle. But I wish you ladies luck too. Moms need a break too

My baby loves the individually sold nuk bottle nipples they look flat and are red at bottom, she won't take any other nipple. I bought mine at Walgreens

I will try that! I'm willing to try every bottle and technique it's just very hard because his father works 12 hour shifts and I have no one else to help transition him to the bottle
