It is not up to YOU to transition baby from breast to formula - the mother needs to do that. My boys were both breastfed and #2 boy NEVER took a bottle. This is unfair to you and the baby. She should start the introduction to a bottle with breast milk not formula as well. It's too much change all at once for the baby.

I don't understand why on earth someone would breastfeed for 6 weeks and expect the baby to take a bottle from someone else easily. If baby won't take the bottle from Mom who smells like milk, then Dad needs to help transition the baby.

I'd tell them that once baby is fully on bottle you'll take her back. Do not put up with this - it's torture for baby and you!
