I couldn't get either of my kids to drink from a bottle unfortunately. With DS I tried really really hard as I had cracked nipples that wouldn't heal and it was agonizing. The one thing we did have a little bit of success with was feeding him when he was basically asleep (so, after rocking him to sleep or going in and picking him up just before he woke fully). He seemed to suck for a little while before rejecting the bottle. Might be worth a try. Good luck!
