    Default Switching from Breast To Bottle

    The countdown has begun for going back to work and all of a sudden bottle feeding has turned into a nightmare!!! We introduced the bottle very early and my daughter wouldn't take it; my husband tried feeding her with an avent bottle at that time. Then I went and bought the Gerber Nuk bottle and we tried that; she took it, but reluctantly. We have been feeding her one bottle a day like every other day for several weeks and then all of a sudden she is refusing to take the bottle at all!!! What can I do? How do I get her to eat out of the bottle again??? She is almost 9 weeks old.

    You may have to try different bottles until you find one she prefers - that worked for me. My LO prefers the Medela with the wide slow flow nipples.

    Mine would only drink from a latex nipple, not a silicone one. We used Playtex drop-ins; it just looks more like a real breast to me for some reason.
