Do you wash your bottles with a scented dishwashing liquid?? My lil guy wont touch any bottles washed with lemon scented liquid..I use a really mild mint soap for him and I also figured he wont drink his milk if it is too cool..he likes it spot on!

I totally know how you feel my son wont take the bottle either :( and i would  like a night out too. I got him to take the bottle a couple times though :) When he was half asleep, I held him in the breastfeeding position and slipped the bottle in his mouth, from underneath my arm, and he started sucking on it ;) i was so exited lol haha. ;) probably because he wasnt fully concious lol i dont know. Oh i also tried warming the nipple with tap water to imitate the warmth of a boob not sure if that helped haha, but ya im still trying, mabye ill try the sippy cup as well. Good Luck!!

I have no sisters. :) I've tried all kinds of nipples. Texture and everything.



But she just won't take one. I thought just maybe somebody out there



would have gone through this too and had a trick to make them take too



the bottle. My health nurse told me if she won't take the bottle to try her with



a sippy cup. So I guess that's what I will have to try next. I really hope it works.



I'm in need of a night out!!



Thanxs for your comment

We also call our little one a diva too. She will not take anything but



boob too. I would love a night out with my husband. But it isn't looking



so good!! I've bought the Adiri also and she refused it too :( I think we



have every bottle and nipple too. She is so fussy she won't even take



her Vitamin D drops. She throws them up!! What a girl. Where gonna have



fun with these two little ones when they get bigger!

Arhhhhh Me too! My little girl Chloe is super picky and refuses to take anything but the boob! I have bought every bottle and nipple possible, even the adiri bottle that looks like a boob. I have exhausted all ideas aswell and I would sure like a night out! I call Chloe a lil Diva b/c she knows what she likes. My son would take anything you put in his mouth! go figure hey? HELP
