Bottle Challenge. Tips?

My baby boy used to take pumped bottles no problem now he won't take them at all, he only wants to nurse, and that's not always an option. Any tips? I use the first years breast flow bottles, as I said before he used to take them no problem. What should I do?

My DS just finally took the mimjumi bottle. My ODS wouldn't take anything though so we used sippy cups (the cheap ones that come like 10 in a pack with the snap on top) and kind of poured drops in his mouth. It wasn't great but it would tide him over.

Have you tried a different bottle? Most breastfed babies I know will take Adiri or Tommee Tippee.

If he's old enough for a sippy I'd try that. DD started drinking out of one at about 6 months, she won't take any bottle but loves the sippy.

Will he take a bottle from someone else when you're not around?

Hmmm I'm not sure if he will, or not. Maybe he's protesting.

You may want to have someone else try when you're out of the room. My oldest wouldn't take a bottle from me, he wanted to eat right from the source if it was available. Good luck!
