Re: help - 8 month old refusing bottle

Thank you for the suggestions! The hold where she on my lap facing out was best and she finally took a full bottle tonight! I think the cradle hold is too much like bfing and she wants to see why she isn't nursing... I got her to take a playtex nurser - after a bit of protest- she latched on and drank it all up. I'm so relieved! Thank you for your help. We also had decent luck right before the bottle worked - with a playtex hard spout sippy. I'm sort of shocked she tolerated that (they are my toddler's) but she seemed to be ok with it because it was hard and not squishy. The bottle is much more natural - more like bfing - and I think she was hungry enough and getting sleepy and finally took it. Thanks for all the suggestions!
