I'm going to be leaving my baby soon for 48 hours. She will be 15 weeks old. I was planning to wean by then but both her and I are enjoying breast feeding so I'm reluctant to give it up just for a weekend away. I have trialled her with formula when she was a few weeks old and she took it fine, no issues (had about 3 bottles in a 2 week period). I have tried again recently and she is flat out refusing a bottle. So I tried different bottles with no success. I have now started expressing for her milk while I'm away and she won't even take EBM in a bottle!! I'm so disheartened, I don't know what else to try. I've had my mum try and feed her as she will be looking after my children while I'm away but no luck there either. My mum said she will eat if she's hungry enough, but how can I enjoy my weekend away thinking my baby will be so upset because she wants her milk straight from the source! She literally gags and screams when trying to give her a bottle, it's like she's being tortured
Any advice please? I've been looking forward to some time out but now it's looking like it won't happen.
