Bottle To Breast

I started pumping for my 5 month old baby and he now refuses to br___tfeed and will only take a bottle. I have been giving him a bottle for 4 weeks now and I miss br___tfeeding. I am wondering if it is possible to get him to br___tfeed again or is it too late? I am getting very sick of pumping and feeding since it takes twice as long!

What nipple size did you use on the bottle??? Always use the slowest flow with a brestfed baby b/c they have to work to get milk out of a b___st whereas witha bottle the milk flows much easier. I would just stop offereing the bottle and see if he gets hungry enough and will nurse.

I agree with excited. Use only slow flow nipples. I use playtex natural latch nipple slow flow and my daughter does great. However, when I used a medium flow nipple my daughter got very frustrated at my b___st and use to squirm and hit them because the milk was not coming out fast enough. Try nursing your baby when they are half asleep, that worked for me.

I wish I had your problem. My 5 mo old will only take the b___st. I can not give him a bottle to save my life. He took one for about 8 weks, then all of a sudden he quit. He gags when he sees one. Little drama king!
