My daughter is 11 weeks old and is nursing. When she was 6 weeks, I started giving her the bottle (with my milk of course). Never had an issue about her taking it, but now she doesn't want to take it at all! She just wants the real thing and has gone on strike with the bottle lol We keep trying different nipples but she just spits it out. What can I do??

I was trying to get her use to the bottle only for when I had to leave for doctor appointments or other events. At 6 weeks, I gave her the bottle and the boob and she was doing great! now it's like she is going on strike with the bottle LOL so I have to keep trying! But I think having my husband or someone else feed her with the bottle might be better than myself trying! Thank you!

she may not take a bottle from you or at least not for awhile. If you are trying to wean then you may have to only offer the bottle. they will eat when they get hungry. good luck and God bless!

Have you tried having some one else give her the bottle? My nephew only takes a bottle if his mother is out of sight and hearing range for a long time. If there is any chance she is near he wont take the bottle. He is only two months
