I'm breastfeeding my 3rd child, my daughter and MAN is she HARDWORK!!! My boys would switch from breast to bottle to dummy (pacifier) with no problems and no nipple confusion.
My girl is now 6 months old and still will not accept any form of nipple/bottle/teat/pacifier whatsoever - depsite our numerous attempts. We have BreastFlow bottles too - what a waste of £30 (for 6) they were!!!
I'm at a loss!! I need to stop breastfeeding for the sake of my 18 month old, who is suffering becuase I have to constantly hold and soothe and feed my 6 month old daughter..
I'm just going to perservere with breastfeeding until she self weans - she's not even started solids yet, depsite numerous attempts over the past 3 weeks - becuase she just hates hates hates anything else in her mouth other than my nipple.
I figure I'll just let her go at her own pace - they're only babies for such a short space of time - and as she's my last - I don't want to miss a minute so I'm trying my hardest to try and accommodate her and do things as and when she is ready.
Good luck in your quest and I'll be watching this thread in case anyone has any tips or suggestions I haven't yet tried!
EDD January 2014
Unexpectedly expecting - pregnant with #4 This will definitely be the final baby. I have NO preference as to boy or girl this time round. Whatever I am handed, I accept gratefully, as long as s/he is healthy and arrives safely. I'M SO EXCITED!!!! AARRRGGHHHHH!!!
