    I'm just jumping in here (haven't read most of this thread, sorry!) but we've had a lot of trouble getting my 3mo DD to drink from a bottle. We've just had some success with the pigeon peristaltic tests, they are great! Definitely more nipple-like than others we tried!

    Great thanks! I'm praying to all the Mummy Gods that it works..

    Any others tips on how you got DD to take it? Mine did take one up until 3 months and then we left it two weeks and she's refused since.. Quite common in my mothers group apparently.

    Default 5 month old sleeping and feeding issues - do I need a routine?

    @gingermillie I just wanted to give you a positive story. I know it's great that posters are sympathising with you but I know the last thing I wanted to hear is that people still had cr@p sleepers at 12 months, 2 years etc as the thought that it couldn't be fixed or would be ongoing reduced me to tears.

    Well my dd1 was mostly a nightmare until with sleeping until around 7 months I think, with good periods to get my hopes up thinking I had it cracked only to be crushed by phases of nights of hell again, when I found a book and routine that worked for us and it all gradually got better and easier. The cr@p phases became less frequent and less in duration. Whilst she never became one of those magical 7-7 babies she would sleep pretty darn good (ie an 8-10 hour stretch then a quick feed) and I could manage with that

    I have my fingers crossed for you. I was there at that point with a 6 month old cr@p sleeper and no end in sight, but it did get better

    You'll pick up some good tips/techniques at sleep school and it'll all work out for you and your dd1 I'm sure, and come out at the other end remembering those endless nights quite fondly lol!

    Xxxx

    I got DH to give it to her and it was slightly before she was due for a feed, before she got hungry and upset, because I didn't think that she'd take it if she was already cranky. She fussed a bit but once she realised what it was she drank it. She will flat out refuse it if it's not nice and warm. And after taking it from daddy a few times she's now even had some for me!

    I'm off to amcal tomorrow to try them too. Dd2 won't take one (she also refused a dummy, stubborn!) and I'm going out for a wedding in 2 weeks. Dd1 never took a bottle either sigh. Wide neck or slim neck anyone? Or doesn't matter?

    The wide neck peristaltic is what we had luck with 😊 they're really soft and nipple shaped

    I tried the slim which didn't work for me. The nuk has an interesting shape with the hole in the bottom and for some reason DD liked it. I think I tried every brand except dr Browns which was going to be my next and probably last try after I got the nuk. Giving her the teat to play with when she was in thumb sucking mood seemed to work (or coincidence or the planets aligned or she just felt sorry for me lol)
