Challenge Packs!

Saturday, June 7, 2008


I'm having some problems here..Isa will NOT take a bottle. I've waited the recommended 4 weeks to introduce a bottle, as to "avoid nipple confusion." Gosh darn it if Isa's going to get confused about any kind of nipple! The only nipple she wants is MINE! I've tried everything. I've tried different nipples. I've tried leaving the house and having someone else give the bottle to her. I've even tried buying those ridiculously expensive Adiri bottles out of pure desperation. I don't know what else to do. I've been pumping milk out in hopes that one day I can leave the baby with someone else while me and Jason have a nice dinner out. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE the breastfeeding relationship we have, it's beautiful and I treasure it and I plan to do it for as long as I can. It's just that sometimes momma's need some time away! Any tips out there? Anyone?!

Take a deep breath, it will happen sooner or later. Have you tried the bottles with bags? Sounds like you probably have. Gillian was the same way when I first started to be her nanny and finally one day it just happened with the bag bottles, and it was bliss after that. I am sure once Isabel realizes the quickness of the bottle, you'll be home free to have some Demi time. Apparently she is loving the intamacy of breastfeeding too. Sounds pretty sweet;) love you!!!
