    My LC suggested trying when they are sleeping/just waking.... Don't know if it works yet as we are trying with our 5mth old tonight. Might be worth a try?

    Try different bottles, I tried many before I found one my babies would take. I ended up with Dr Browns Wide Neck bottles. Also my babies would only ever drink out of 1 flow teats for newborns - even now at 20 months my daughter has a bottle for her nap and will ONLY drink out of a 1 flow teat. Try that.

    I tried closer to nature bottles with my first born with zero success. Dr Browns = winner. And it didn't effect our breastfeeding relationship either.

    Oh, and what formula are you using? I found mine would ONLY drink Nan HA or expressed EBM out of a bottle, and with the EBM they'd only drink it if I'd just freshly expressed it, the wouldn't drink it out of the fridge, even if I warmed it. With formula they'd only drink it if heated to EXACTLY 40 degrees, no hotter no colder.

    Yea I use TT CTN ones too. DD took to them easily when I had to stop breastfeeding.

    I hope you find something that works!

    My almost five month old had the same problem only a couple of weeks ago. I tried different bottles, different teats, ebm,,formula, feeding her at different times of the day, getting different people to feed her. No love.

    Randomly, I dipped the teat of the bottle into a little bit of gripe water. Worked a treat. She now drinks from a bottle no problem!

    i'm not saying it'll work for everybody, but hey, it's worth a try!

    I have been trying everyday, she would drink if she's not over tired or hungry. I think if I persist it will work she will only take a bottle after her solids at night, the max she'll drink is about 90ml. Then she will want the boob. I guess it's a good start thank you for asking

    Agree on the TT CTN bottles! Our DD will only drink from them. Also sounds silly, but I made the mistake of not quite warming the formula up enough. Once I did that it really helped!
