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

i'm in the same boat as your friend. My dd is also 4 months old and she won't take a bottle. we have tried several different ones, even the adiri nurser that i paid $14 for. it is the closest thing to looking like a boob and we tried to give it to her and she acted like it hurt her feelings. we can't leave her with anyone because she won't take a bottle. let us know if the dropper or cup work?

have you tried the Adiri bottle? we are going to give this a shot when ds's congestion is cleared up. Looks like it might work! plus, it is BPA (and other nasty chemical) free.

I have the same problem, and we tried that one and she still won't take it.

My son won't take a bottle but I noticed he does drink it from a cup. It's just messier.

Today, I gave it to her via syringe and a Nuby cup...she did ok at her first feeding-way better than with the bottle. But, with the second feeding, she refused. I eventually had to give it to her with the syringe I didn't want her going hungry. She swallowed fine...she just wasn't trying to "suck" like she did earlier. She was crying in the midst of it and it was awful! Then, I gave her some gripe water for an upset tummy and she sucked on the syringe, which shows me she knows what to do. Maybe she's just rejecting breast milk from a bottle and not the actual bottle itself...
