How do you get your baby from breastfed to bottle-fed? My 6 month old daughter refuses every bottle I've ever tried. Please suggest how I can get her to want to eat from a bottle?

I had trouble with this as well and went nine months before I got my son on a sippy cup. Try having someone other than you give the bottle. When she is in your arms she wants what you've got! Do it at a time when she is hungry but not starving. Also, try warming the nipple up so it is more familiar feeling to her. Good Luck!

Why does she need to take a bottle? Some babies never take a bottle. She is old enough that you can start trying to introduce her to a sippy cup (w/ breast milk in it... water is still not necessary, but an ounce or two on RARE occasion isn't harmful) and see if she takes to that easier.
