my baby has completed 5months. i thought he should adapt bottle feeding so i bought enfamil just to feed him once or twice a day but he just refuses to take the bottle in his mouth. i tried but he cries. what should I do to make him accept the bottle?

Answer:
If baby is on breast milk then weaning baby off breast and getting him used to bottle is difficult. Exclusive Breast feeding for first 6 months will help in the healthy growth of the baby plus also provide him immunity to fight against various illnesses. Wait till your baby is 6 months of age, before starting any new milk in baby's diet.
