    Ha, babies. They're always one step ahead of me!
    I thought about buying a latex teat for DD's bottle because I read they're softer. Why does it have to be so hard?? Lol

    Can you try getting hubby or someone else offer her the bottle while ur not around? Lots if bubs refuse bottles from mum at first as they know the milk they really want is right there

    I started weaning ds around 7m. He initially refused the bottle. Tried so many different ones. I ended up giving it a break. Just let him play with the empty bottle then one day put milk in and lo and behold he drank from it. It took a few goes until he finished a full bottle but he eventually loved them! Also he liked the narrow neck and not wide neck. Persevere and good luck

    I tried so many different bottles!! DD eventually took the cheapest bottle from Coles, it did take a couple of weeks before she eventually gave in for me, however if I wasn't home she would take the EBM from my DH.

    Formula was another issue, took forever to get her to drink it, she use to just spit it out.

    The pigeon bottles worked for us. It took us 5 weeks to get bubs to take the bottle n as with your little one, DS never outright refused the bottle but would always toy with it n couldn't latch onto the teats properly.
