Have a fully breastfed 8.5 month old and would like Hubby to help with the feeds. Any tips or tricks to help introduce her to the bottle? Have tried different types and brands? All with no success.

  • Check the temperature.
    When I had my first baby she refused the bottle, it was too cold for her. I expressed a bit of milk and checked the temperature, I was making it hot.
    Same thing with bub 3 today. I tried room temperature breast milk and it was spat out. Once I warned it, the bottle was taken easily.
    All the best

  • This is a tricky one. Have you tried feeding your bub with a bottle? It would be interesting to see if they take a bottle off you first then work on getting your bub used to your husband doing it. Are they on solids yet? Keep at it!
