Who should be giving the bottle.

There's a saying that your baby can sense you up to 20 feet away! I don't know how true that is, but I do know that when we started giving my son a bottle if I was any where around, he refused and held out for the real deal. There are a couple things you can do, to better your chances on baby taking a bottle. First have someone else give the bottle. A spouse, family member, even a future caregiver. Any one other than mom. Some moms end up having to leave the room or even the house entirely the first couple of times. Eventually once your baby gets the hang of taking a bottle you (mom) can start to give the bottle. Don't forget though if you are using expressed milk, you cannot forget to keep your breast stimulated and producing. (your milk production is like supply and demand, so if your not demanding it supply will decrease.) this will make a tough week to work on getting production back up.
