DD is 5 months old and is currently breastfed, starting solids. We will be going away for 2 weeks without the kids in 3 months time, so would like DD to be able to drink from a bottle (formula we have decided) before we go. We have tried to give her some formula in a bottle every now and then, and sometimes she will take it depending on mood, but in the end it's just so much easier if I just breastfeed her.
Recently we have had a few occasions when we left DD at SIL for a day (where she will be staying while we are away) and she just won't take a bottle at all! She would wait till I get back. Yesterday I went to a hens night and she again didn't drink anything. Today I tried to give her bottle again, DH tried giving her bottle but she just cries.
If I just keep in breastfeed her until we go, will she eventually drink formula if she's hungry enough while we are gone? I like to breastfeed her for as long as I could, and I can't stand her crying and searching for me but we like it to be easy for SIL too, she'll have to watch my 2 plus her own 5!
Any tips? What would you do?
