    Thanks for the advice everybody it does feel better to know that we're not the only ones going through it. I feel terrible guilty. Hopefully tomorrow will be ok.

    DH will try his best he is very worried she will be hungry but there is plenty of milk in the fridge/freezer.

    Fingers crossed for you that she will be fine

    If it helps I was one of those babies that refused to have a bottle/dummy/cup. Mum went back to work and fed me until 19 mths. I wouldn't drink at all until she came home and she said I made up for it by cluster feeding and feeding all night.

    I hope you have a good day tomorrow

    Not sure if this will work for you but when we were trying to get DS to take the calma teat we had to squeeze the bottle to get some milk to come out and then he started sucking it. He was already taking a normal teat though.

    So DD took 80mls while i was gone from a mam bottle. I did give her a huge feed before I left and when I got home.

    She only took 80mls in the time I was gone. So I guess she can and will take a bottle (sort of), she's just not happy about it. She made up for it when I got home though
