    Default How long did your baby take to drink from a bottle???

    Dd3 is 4 months and I'm trying to get her to drink from the bottle, problem is she is being extremely stubborn!! I've tried expressed milk and formula, even a mix of them at the same time.. I'm now using a nipple shield to get her use to the rubber but she hates it and its so hard to get her to feed but once she's on she's ok until she slips off!! So how long did it take to ge your stubborn bub to take a bottle? I have until the 19th feb to get her to as I have a 4 day workshop at my uni..

    Have you tried getting someone else to feed her? She has no choice if she can't smell your milk or see your big milk cartons on your chest
    Other than that I can't help, I've just read that advice in heaps of threads over the past few months.

    A sippy cup or straw? (Or is she too young for a straw? I don't really know how these things go)
