    Default 7mth old won't take a bottle....tips please!

    Hi everyone,
    My LO still won't take a bottle and am due back to work in 6 weeks. He's on solids. 3 milk feeds and 3 solids a day. I've tried tommee tipee brand, como tomo, expressed milk, formula. He just chews on it and waits for the breast. Any advice would be great!

    Hi, my ds had issues with using a bottle. The only way I could do it in the end was to get Avent bottles and my mum fed him with me in another room. He wouldn't have a bar of the bottle if he could smell the booby. I hope you find something that works xx

    I've had this problem with both my older kids, no magic answer, try different bottles, sippy cups etc. Also someone else feeding him sometimes works. One of mine ended up taking a bottle, the other never did, but would take a sippy cup when she was a little older.

    Thanks ladies! Still trying, hopefully he'll take a sippy cup by the time I head to work in a few weeks.

    My 6mo daughter finally took a medela teat after 2 months of refusing all types of bottles and teats. I also have to give her the bottle while lying next to her - she won't take it if I hold her. Good luck - I'm sure it's just a phase that will pass soon

    My dd took around 2 weeks to get used to a sippy cup at 6 months. She had never had a bottle though before
