    You could try a breastfeed at night and dream feed before you go to bed? My bottle refuser used to take the dream feed. She's now 14 months and happily takes a bottle but didn't between 3-8 months

    I had to struggle with the same problem with DS and DD.
    I use the closer to nature bottles by tommee tippee.
    I tried to give the bottle at the same time everyday, I found my kids like the temp of bottle cooler than I expected. And with DD she ended up drinking milk only when I sing to her.
    I offered her one bottle a day for 1 month before she started drinking it. And she would only take a bottle given by me and feed in the same position as breast feeding.

    Abubby - I do both. As I said your supply is naturally lower at night so I give her the bottle and then both breasts so I'm not creating a supply issue. I don't think she's over full as I offer the bottle first and then she will take both breasts happily. It's not just about her sleeping 12 hrs id also like her to take a bottle so I can go out for dinner one night.

    Minimouse81- I'm too scared to wake her as she sleeps so well and goes down without a fuss I'm worried a dream feed might disrupt our routine.

    Tubster- yeh she hated that teat too. I might try sing to her, she loves singing.

    Thanks for the replies

    That's fair enough about wanting her to take a bottle so you can go out. Have you tried doing at different times of the day, just ti get used to a bottle? Sorry if uve answered that I'm on my phone so cannot see posts as I reply.

    Abubby- haven't tried that yet but I will. It won't help that we give it to her in the witching hours!

    This article outlines alternatives to bottles (including cup feeding, finger feeding and feeding with dropper, spoon, or syringe.)

    Thanks AM - she'll take all those methods I just find it messy and tedious. She spills a lot of it when cup drinking. I suppose if I got desperate and had to go out without her though it's an option. She'll also take it off a spoon.

    No idea why she hates the silicone teat so much!
