I second the breastflow bottles. they work amazingly for us when our LO wouldn't take any other bottle.

Re: Breastfed baby won't take bottle!!! Help!

My daughter refused bottles until 10months and at that point it was just for fun, not for an actual feeding.

The nights I had class and missed a feeding DH would feed her via syringe. She eventually learned to suck on the syringe and get the milk so it worked out ok. Luckily it was only the one time that I had to miss a feeding.

I've heard wonderful things about the breastflow bottles. Keep trying with different nips and maybe you'll find one that works!

Wow! Thanks for all the responses! Does anyone know if Breastflow bottles are BPA free? I am sure she'll want to know. Thanks again!

Ok...another post! I just found, for anyone who wants to know, that you can use the Breastflow bottle with Avent Tempo liners which are BPA free. That would be a good solution, IMO!

Re: Breastfed baby won't take bottle!!! Help!

my son quit taking bottles at about 3 or 4 months old. We switched to sippy cups and that worked much better. We still had to try several brands, but it was way better than bottles.

good luck

My LO refused a bottle at daycare. She reversed her feedings from day to night. So she would go all day at daycare without eating and then keep me up all night to feed. Goodness it was tough! But that was only for a few weeks until we found the solution... breastflow bottles! A live saver for me! The liners are a great idea!

I am still nursing, but definitely don't feel comfortable nursing someone else's child.
