Re: How to get DD to take a bottle HELP ASAP!

Have you tried a cup? My youngest wouldn't take a bottle either. We fed him w/a cup - sometimes it's easier to try w/a medicine cup, like the ones you use to give cough syrup. It's flexible & you can manipulate it a little. DS ended up taking this fine from anyone. He took to it right away. I had the LC show me this method. It was really amazing - he did this at only just under 2 weeks old when I had a medical emergency. We continued to do this later if there was an issue.

Once we got this method down & he got bigger we graduated to a bigger cup, beyond the medicine size cup.
