Re: getting the baby to take a bottle?
First I would say that you can't be there. At all. Not even in another room. If your baby knows you are there she will want it straight from the tap. The other thing is bottle varieties. Seems most babies have a bottle preference, which usually means trying a bunch of different ones before finding the one your baby will use. And one last thing, whoever gives the bottle probably shouldn't try to mimic mama but find their own way of feeding. Hope that helps! It seems frustrating but I've never heard of a baby refusing forever. It may just take some time.
