Refusing bottle feed
Created by Updated on Feb 28, 2016
My LO has been BF from birth but now when she is 4 months I am trying to give her bottle with little formula milk which is not taking by any means.

Initially babies do resist to drink from bottle.... but you should keep trying... they need some time to analyse the bottle nipple and how to chew it to get milk out... try putting some milk on the nipple and put it in babies mouth... if they resist remove and try after sometime.... try for three times a day not more than that. You can also run your bottle nipple under warm water so that baby may feel the warmth as if its real one. Try feeding baby while he is half asleep and hungry... in market today we find different kinds of nipples with different textures... try to find out which one wil suit ur baby but be cautious not to immediately put different nipplesin babies mouth.... it will leave him confused and may never accept a bottle.
