Leena Pandyya

give from bowl and spoon, i know people will oppose but baby will have it nicely from spoob

Archana kiran

for the time being try to give with bowl and spoon.. my baby also had the same pblm..she didnt take any other food othet than breast milk.. our paed advised to start weaning after completing her 4th month..from then we are giving her formula milk , home made baby food like raggi.. mrng and evening i feed her .. othet time we give her other baby food and fruit juice.. initially she had pblm with bottle ,now she is fine with it. also before joing back to work give baby to others for feeding.. by the time of ur joing baby will be adjusted with all other members..

thnx for the tag BabyChakra ! but i hv been working from home ever since i jumped into momhood! the katori spoon idea seems the best suggestion. just dont stress monali - our babies are stronger than we think! thankfully ur family members are there so u hv a solid support system! all the best - go conquer the world! baby will be fine. just start Weaning foods simplified for all new mothers asap

Monali

Thank you Manvi, Leena, Archana, Asha....

Dr. Mugdha Joshi

It's normal for you to get stressed but do not worry. As a Lactation Consultant I have seen many mother who have exclusively breastfed their babies inspite of joining work. I too have exclusively given breastmilk inspite of joining work when my baby was 3 months. U just need some planning in advance. Try using natural feeding bottle. Be persistent . Your baby will definitely take. Latch on the bottle and the breast is different thus breastfed babies are initially reluctant to latch on the bottle. Do express Breastmilk and Store, so that the stash is there.
