    Question Supplementing

    I want to supplement with a formula but my dd does not take a bottle or like the taste of formula. She is almost 7 months now. So my questions are:

    1) how do i get her to drink from a bottle?

    2) How do I get her to like formula? So far i have tried enfamil. Wud trying some other formula help? Do diffferent formulas taste different?

    Any suggestions wud be appreciated.

    Thanks

    i had to give lo formula and my DH said he refused it and what he did take he spit out or threw up, it can be challenging when you HAVE to give it...but like the others said, we maybe able to help more if we know a little more info
