Attention Mommies..

So this is one of those posts calling all mothers. You know one of those posts where I pled words of wisdom from those that have been there before. Those who may have crossed this bridge and found a life preserver swimming through the moat...

It's one of those moments when I beg you to read and those thoughts running through your mind (YES, I know you have them)... COMMENT.

But yall EJ hates his bottle now, I mean he loved it, it was the best moment of the day every 3 hours and then he was introduced to FOOD. And now he fasts from breakfast to dinner, well not really but he is so not interested in the bottle. He takes it for a minute and then moves on and then I shove back into in his face and he sucks and then he looks me like no I don't want this and moves his head.  I mean seriously I know food tastes good but you have to have a liquid diet for 5 more months. HELP!

Hmm...I never had that problem because my little one LOVES her bottle. Maybe he is ready to go to more meals a day? And maybe you could try a sippy cup?

sore throat? teething? ear infection?

Coming from a different angle here maybe, but do you do 'food' at a regular time everyday? And is it before the bottle or after? We are working on giving H bottles at home and she kind of plays with them (esp. if I give them to her) so I try for a bit and then put it away until it's time for her to eat again. She seems to change up her routine from time to time, but I don't think she will stave. :) We only do 'food' on the weekends after her 3pm bottle.

Have you tried changing the flow of your nipples? Also, sometimes they just aren't interested. I wouldn't stress about it too much, though. As long as he's gaining weight, you're good.
