I have a now 6month old baby girl, I have tried every kind of formula and bottles and she will not take then! I want to stop breastfeeding because I have started to notice that I don't have as much milk as I used to! But I don't know how to get her to take her bottle we have tried everything and no luck! Any help?

Try pumping and putting your milk in the bottle, warm the nipple up as well before feeding. Feed her the bottle at a time when she is hungry, not starving and in a good mood. Also have someone other than you give hr the bottle. When she is with you she is going to want to what you've got. Why do you think you are not making enough milk? Is she is gaining weight and reaching milestones? If she seems hungry all of the time, she may be having a growth spurt and that will level out in a few days. You can also try a cup?

Well, keep trying and have you discussed solids with her doctor? She will still need the calories from either breastmilk or formula until her first birthday. Does she seem content? If so maybe she is getting enough and your body is just adjusting?

I have tried pumping and putting it in a bottle, but she won't take the bottles, her dad tried feeding her, and we also bought cups but no luck, my breasts are not as full as they used to be and I feel like she's not eating enough.
