    Tried the Adiri bottle - she almost took it. I was about to dig around for cup feeding instructions but got pulled onto a call.

    Anyone try the Nuk nipples? Like them?

    Should I just give up and hope that I won't have to go into the office for anything?

    I know she won't starve but I can't help but worry.

    Maybe give the Breastflow bottles a try? http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=3393698

    Also wanted to mention, we used the Playtex nursers with disposable liners and DD seemed to like them just fine. We used the slow flow, "natural latch," latex nipples on the bottles when we were first starting out. This starter kit for Playtex bottles comes with various types of nipples, some latex, some silicone, an orthodontic shaped one, fast flow, slow flow, etc. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=2408965

    Try not to worry, mama... she'll take one eventually... you guys will figure it out! I have confidence in you!!!

    Noah refused every nipple but the Gerber NUK ones. the ones that are pretty wide.. might be worth a shot.

    Well I went out - in the pouring rain - and picked up a Breastflow (very reasonably priced) and a Nuby bottle ()

    I'll try the breastflow tomorrow or later on tonight.
