Does anyone have ideas on how I can get my baby to drink from her bottle? We’ve been solely breastfeeding for 8 weeks as she has allergies to dairy, soy and raw egg. She used to take the bottle no worries. I’ve got medela calma bottles, tomee tippee and nuby.¬†Any help?

  • If possible get hubby to do it, only because of the boob association. Keep trying, especially when you know bub is hungry. You have the right idea of trying a few different bottles as sometime the cheaper ones work really well for some, and other prefer the more expensive.

  • Try softening the teat’s you already have boil them a few times and then some.
    We made sure that the teat had been dipped in the milk/formula so bub could get the taste and knew what was coming. Bub’s are fast learners.

  • i would think that you should try this in a month or two. she will have her skills develop better by then and will be starting food and might be a bit happier to try the bottle.

    some kids like booby too much as well

  • Hi I found my babies liked the happy baby teats they were inexpensive and bpa free, good luck

  • Thanks I’ll try that

  • What about a soppy cup you can take the valve out of? That way it is free flowing and she won’t have to suck….just a thought.
