my son that is. So much that he's refusing the bottle more often than not. He hasn't taken the bottle from anyone but me, and sometimes he'll throw a good fit when I offer it to him. I have returned to work 2 nights a week; so him taking the breastmilk out of a bottle is a necessity. Unfortunately I'm not getting any feedback from the grandparents or the father about procedures and attempts so it's hard to know what needs to change. Everyone just gets mad at me for returning to my job that they don't approve of and leaves me to problem solve. I'm quite displeased about the lack of support from those that are supposed to be there. It's easy to buy diapers and toys and clothes; don't get me wrong that is a blessing cuz some babies don't have that. But coming from where I do, I expect more in terms of working together. I feel that there is pressure from my family and the father for this to not work out; thus my independence is stifled. Even though we are apart, I know he dislikes me getting dressed up and going to sing in a pub; & my kin believes I'm not putting the baby first; although I think being a welfare mom is certainly no step in the right direction if it can be avoided. Then the father complains about paying $20 for cab fare home at the end of the night - $160 / month to travel and see his son is 2much; paying the rent where his son & I live is too much. He "NEEDS" a car and his cell phone back - these are his priorities. I'm praying for a spiritual intervention, cuz I'm not looking back this year. I've got plans for me & my son; and that doesn't include being controlled by other's insecurities Back to the boob - I've tried 2 different nipples, warming them, and different positions. If anyone has suggestions on getting a 4 month old to mix feed - I'm all ears!
