Advice, anyone??!

I need some advice on how to get Haidyn to take a bottle….I have two weeks to accomplish this mission.  HELP!!


  1. oh man, kari. that is TOUGH. i struggles with both of mine and in the end i truly had to starve them almost. but it was just one time. once they took it, they were fine. i’m pretty sure they basically missed one feeding, which put them at 7-8 hours between being nursed and finally taking the bottle. it sounds kind of awful now that i’m putting it on paper, but i didn’t have a choice. hope you get some better advice from someone else!! :)

  3. ugh…sorry. it’s not fun. i am promising with this one to feed her one bottle each day from the time i bring her home just so i don’t have to go through that again. nursing is just so easy, but when it comes time to need more than 3 hours away, you are out of luck!
    good luck!

  4. I think putting some nice cold Coke-Cola in there would do the trick. NO gee– I think I mentioned before what Cassie was saying– after awhile she will get hungry enough and will drink it. But also I think it needs to be someone else feeding and not you. I did what Cassie just mentioned about giving them one bottle a day after coming home from the hospital and it does work and is nice for when you have to be away. And when your —-s need a break!
