Re: baby won't take bottle

How old is she?

I had to leave my EBF daughter when she was 7 months old for 4 days, and she refused to take a bottle the entire time. But wh would take a sippy cup, so thats what they gave her.

Re: baby won't take bottle

She's just 12 weeks. She is eating from the bottle ok now. We ended up going with the mOmma bottles and fast flow nipples. I have overactive letdown and oversupply so I think some of it was that she was getting frustrated. She doesn't really have to work at all when breastfeeding!

I have a EbF baby. But he does have a bottle every once in a while. And at first I had slow flow nipples and he took forever and I bumped him up to a fast flow latex nipple and he does SO much better.

We had lots of troubles until Dr. Brown's. We also had to use fast nipples to keep our little one happy!
