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?!
