Does anyone have problems getting their baby to take a bottle? I had him familiar with a bottle and my breast as early as two weeks old...there was zero nipple confusion. He's now over 4 months old. He got sick with bronchitis like a month ago (still has a bit of a cough) and due to his feeling ill, he was super clingy and refused the bottle. Since then, we've wasted so much breast milk in attempts to get him to take a bottle...even daycare had to call me twice to bring him home b/c he wouldn't take a bottle and was screaming in hunger. My family, friends and husband can't get him to take it and the baby will go nuts until I am there to nurse him. I think he's been fighting a cold or something for this whole time btw, so maybe that has something to do with it? But I am exhausted and at my wits end (b/c he's also waking up 4 times per night to feed -- from either this cold or from not eating enough during the day no matter what we do)...I've even tried supplementing formula into his bottles (1/2 bm and 1/2 formula) to change up the flavor or something....that helps about half the time....just want to see if anyone else is experiencing this.
