    I'm joining this club, it seems. Baby is almost 6 months, and has recently decided not to accept bottles of breast milk anymore while I'm away at work, sometimes 11 hours! Instead, she breastfeeds many times throughout the night. I'm wondering if I should stop sleeping with her in order to help her switch back to drinking in the daytime more. Her weight does not appear to be falling right now.

    Same here...though I don't work my baby is only drinking 4-5 oz instead of the 8oz...think it may be due to the rice cereal that I have introduced....but I shouldn't go back, right? What is the "right" amount to drink at this age? I am using formula to make the rice cereal so I'm hiding it some places...his weight is not falling though...good sign right?

    I know this is an old thread, but my baby has started going on bottle strike today. We just took a long 10 day nursing vacation due to the CNY holidays. No bottles, no pumps - it was perfect. Now that I'm back at work she's refusing the bottle:P I hope this doesn't keep up. She'll be 4 months at the end of this week, would it be too early to start introducing a sippy cup?
