Breastfed baby not taking bottle
January 31, 2013 at 11:20 PM

Not from me, not from SO, not from sister

Not from different nipples, breastmilk is warm, breastmilk is cold

Tried infant dropper didn't take to that either

ANY other ideas?

I just wanted a glass of wine tonight, and she's drank from a bottle before. Looks like she's missing a feeding. So frustrating. I'm fine to feed her now, but what if I wasn't? Grr.

    Leave the house. :) Mine won't take a bottle unless I'm gone.

    You can feed after a single glass of wine. If you're good to drive, you're good to nurse.

    You can have a glass of wine and nurse. But if you're in the room or even the house, expect that bottle to be refused.

    You don't need to miss a feeding r give a bottle fr a glass of wine! Have your wine and nurse as usual. Relax and enjoy!

    One glass of wine? No reason for not nursing for just a glass of wine mama.
    But anyways, bottles are never needed. Small open cups, medicine dropper/syringe, sippy cup with or without the inside valve removed are all different ways to feed baby.
    For future wine purposes, safe to drive= safe to nurse. :)

    No need to skip for one glass of wine--go ahead and nurse!

    I would not have driven after one glass of wine, I have not consumed alcohol in nearly a year- the tolerance is NOT there. We are still breastfeeding on demand and in less than 2 hour periods at all times. And I would like to be able to have a babysitter at some point- something I never did with my first. But with TWO kids- mama would LOVE a break at some point.

    The bottle may have been the problem. Does anyone know if #10 plastic is safe to run under hot water? It did smell a bit plastic-y to me when I opened it and sniffed.

    I couldn't even do HALF a glass of wine after pregnancy. No idea on the plastic but I think you might be on to something. Funny smells can turn them off.

    I have no advice. Fin is the same way, lol. They say if you are OK to drive, you can breastfeed. :)
