Lexi won't take formula. A while back she got her first cold and went on a feeding strike for a few days, but resumed again, only to stop again about a week or two later when she bit me and got a big fright when I yelped with pain! From then she refused every offer. So, I've been giving her water in a Tommy Tippee (Nuby) sipper with a silicone teat that has to be 'bitten' to release the water - However, now every time I offer her a breast, she bites it the same way, looking up at me smiling! But - Ouch!
I've been expressing, but only getting 50-60 mls each time... is it really worth the effort for such a small amount? She won't drink the milk by itself either, so I have been using it to make cereal.
