I am returning to work in a month and I cannot get my 7 1/2 month old ebf baby to take milk from a bottle (expressed or formula).
She is also very petted on me and cries when I leave her any length of time.
I didn't have that trouble with my first baby so any help would be appreciated!

Some don't. Have you tried from a sippy cup? If she takes that then you can use that instead

I had the same problem with my little one, she just refused to take any bottle. One of my friends told me to give the mimijumi bottles a go and it worked brilliantly www.mimijumi.co.uk . They are a little but expensive but but I guess if it works for you then its worth it :-)

I wouldn't worry too much. The nursery will try bottles/sippy cups for you, and the worst case scenario is that baby will wait for you to come back.

My twins started nursery at 12 months. It took them another month or two to master sippy cups (we didn't try bottles), and in the meantime they would just feed all night. Not ideal for me during my first few months back at work, but it was fine for them!

I've that feeding all night problem already. It'll be interesting to see how I cope when I've to get up to go to work!
