I am breast feeding and express milk in bottles, and I have tried diffrent bottles and teats. He just push the bottle out with his tongue and sceam till I breast feed him again.

how is he getting milk then breast feeding? or is he still bottle feeding just giving you a hard time? all i can say is try plenty of different bottles and teats. usually when a baby does that it is reflux or allergy. mine used to be like this. she was bottle fed for 2 months before they put in her nasal gastric i can tell you that was such a relief because force feeding bottle is painful to do and watch so i guess im just asking because wanting to know if he does the same thing as mine or not.

Try the Playtex Drop in bottles with the wide nipple. Helped with my son. He really like the large nipple as apposed to the regular bottle nipples.

Do try all types of bottle nipples. There are a ton of different shapes, sizes and textures.

Have you tried different types of bottles/nipples? My daughter was a fan of AVENT, they have different stages of nipples. Or perhaps, a different type of formula (if that is what you are using). I would contact your doctor right away if this continues, perhaps they have a suggestion. Hope this helps, good luck!
