  • Are you still breastfeeding? I know from experience, when trying to get my son to use a bottle, I would breastfeed him for a bit and then swap to the bottle (normally when he was in a drowsy milk drunk kinda phase, and that helped him get used to the bottle.

  • It maybe the teats that you are using. Perhaps speak to a pharmacist about it.
    Do you hold the bottle or does your baby? A friend of mine wouldn’t take a bottle for me but he would for his Mum. It turned out to be the way I was holding him.

  • It can be hard, just make sure it’s the latch that isn’t the issue. Keep Being consistent and eventually hunger will mean they drink too.

  • When your baby has been used to get the breast from you, it maybe be needed someone else offers her the bottle initially

  • The natural teats are the best, did you try that? Otherwise use a nipple shield so bub gets used to plastic and understand there is nothing wrong with it. Then move to bottle :)

  • I had success with MAM bottles.

  • Cant help you…mine kids never took bottle..i tried and i just gave up. Good luck

  • I had the same issue. I tried medela, tommee tippee, advent and then was recommended Pigeon wide neck bottles and he finally takes that!
