My 6 and a half month old has been only breastfed and I am trying to use bottles now for the convenience. I am using expressed breast milk but he just keeps crying and wont take it. Do I persist and until he does have it and not give him anything else in the hope that he will take it because he is hungry?? It is tempting to just end up giving him the breast when he is crying for it but will this make him just persist anytime he sees the bottle because he knows he will eventually get the breast??? Please help.
