Gotcha. Are you the one that's giving the bottle? If it is, try and see how he does when someone else gives him a bottle. I'd still try the sippy cup, maybe something with a soft spout (like Nuby, or something similar)

Is there a reason that he needs to take a bottle? My twin boys never took bottles but I didn't have to go back to work or anything. If he does need to take one soon, how about a sippy cup?
