hmmm. . . I'm not sure, but maybe just wait until that week and give it to her. If she's hungry, she'll take it. I would however continue to try giving her expressed milk in a bottle so she's used to the bottle. I think she's more likely to reject it b/c of the bottle than what is in the bottle. . . also, her poop will change consistency/color and she will probably spit up more and have more gas b/c she won't be used to it (even in you introduce it before that, she will have this issue)
