Actually at first it is a bit difficult. Please don't give cow milk to her now. Go for a good formula milk after consulting the paediatrician. Also read this article How to Introduce Bottle To Your Baby? At first pump your breastmilk and introduce bottle to her. Keep trying. She will slowly adjust. You can also try feeding from spoon and bowl if she is not taking bottle. But first read that article and introduce bottle to the baby

Hi, pls do not give cows milk right now. Baby will not be able to digest. You can express your milk and store for her. You can also give formula as Neha said.

Why don’t you try expressed breast milk ? You can invest in a breast pump if possible and start feeling it to her to get her used to it.

Her paed should guide you on this.. Anyways you buy breast pump and give breast milk to her.

It is best not to give cow's milk Tina child under one year of age as it is not suited to their system. You should give either formula or expressed breast milk. Most babies will resist and hence it should be given by someone other than the mother in your absence. You can also discuss the introduction of some solids with the pediatrician since baby will be more than five months when you join work.
