Re: Baby won't take bottle
Great advice from the PPs.
If you are truly committed to getting your baby to take a bottle of formula, I suggest trying the following:
- have someone other than you offer the formula, since babies tend not to want take bottles from mom, since they know she has the real thing!
- try different bottle brands, and different nipples on the bottles
- try bottles of breastmilk rather than formula- I took the pepsi challenge and formula tastes nasty compared to mama's milk!
If you can hang in there and keep on nursing, in just a few short months your baby will be able to eat solids while you're out and about, no need for formula!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
