My daughter is 6 months old and is breastfed. I have tried to give her a bottle so that I can leave the house for more then an hour and not worry about her. She refuses the bottle, she only chews and plays with the bottle and nipple. I have tried all kinds of different bottle and nipples with different things inside. I have tried water, breastmilk and formula (three different formulas). I have tried giving her the bottle and so has my husband with me not around. If she does manage to get something in her mouth she just splits it out. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips to get her to take a bottle.
I don`t believe in waiting for her to be hungry enough and upset enough to simply take the bottle, there has to be another way
