Baby Feeding Questions

I feel so horrible for Paul. Bella really just has issues with him! LOL He apparently does not have boobies like me, and .. well.. just isn't ME! LOL
Today I took a shower and Paul had her ( normal) and she was crying the entire time I was in the shower- approx 15 min. So when I came down I asked him if he changed her diaper- no.. so he did and she was wet, and she calmed down for a minute. Then started crying again. He bounced with her, tried different positions, checked her clothes, swaddled her.. nothing really helped. So I warmed up a bottle for him- but she was so far past upset she wouldn't take it. Even in the position I normally feed her. I stayed out of sight the entire time.
Now I know she can still smell me.. but.
What the heck do you do?! How do you transition a baby to a bottle from the breast, AND to a different person for a little bit? I feel TOTALLY guilty going back to work! I know Paul is worried too. I mean.. I really DONT want her to cry the entire time I am gone. We don't do the CIO method. Period. That is not ok in my house!

is working Absolutely necessary for you? Is there any possibility of a work from home position or job? Cause sometimes mommy is just the only thing that will make baby happy.. and if you are not ok with CIO (im not either) then there may be no way to for this to end happily..
With Love,
Marie

Things are going better now, but I am probably going to just be working PT instead. I went to work this last week, and it was pretty stressful for all of us. Plus we now have Thrush. YAY. She is taking a bottle, but I am not able to keep up a good supply.. or pump enough at work, We will see how things go.
