You might have to have someone else feed her. Mommy smells like milk, so baby won't take a bottle from mommy, that's how it is for my two and a half month old.

If she sees or smells you, she probably won't take the bottle. You need to have someone else give her a bottle. Good luck!

My kids wouldn't take a bottle from me, but they would take a bottle from anyone else. Do you have a husband/partner/mom/friend that can try to give them breastmilk from a bottle (with you cowering in the other room, out of sight and out of mind?)

Depending on your child's age, you could try a sippy cup. My son (4 months) refuses bottles, but will drink from a sippy or a sports bottle with a straw.
