Kids normally give hard time while switching. I guess the key here is to give the bottle feed when the baby is not crying and to make sure that you keep trying. The child won't learn it from day one.. You shud not stop trying.

Hi isha Same problem. Even my boy don't entertain spoon. He cries on top of his voice when I try to feed him with spoon, and their was no question of bottle left after that. Tried nipple of different sizes. Finally I am trying to give him bottle during one specific time and also either by my husband feed him bottle or mother in law. U can try to give first in some specific time and also let some one else start with bottle.

u can try nipples with bigger hole. but don't force your baby. my baby too used to chew nipple till he was 5 n half month. then he started putting everything in mouth n eventually started sucking nipple too. till then you ca use spoon feeding. to increase lactation you ca use lactare tablet or powder. mothers milk is always enough for child upto six month. provided mother is having good diet n proper rest. the more your baby sucks, more milk u'll produce. don't ever think you are not lactating enough. If mommies say you r not lactating enough let them say.
