How can I get my 7 week old baby to start taking a bottle?

This is my third child. I haven't had any problems with the other children when it came to switching from breast to bottle. I have tried to give her breast milk in a bottle, i have tried several different nipples, silicone nipples, latex nipples, and she's not having it! She spits the milk out of her mouth, she takes her tongue and pushes the nipple out of her mouth. I'm getting frustrated because I'm supposed to return back to work in a week and it doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon. Please help.

Have you tried breastflow bottles by first years? You can read reviews on and buy at target or, online. Good luck I sympathize with your stress. Even though my baby didn't have a problem with bottle I really worried about being able to pump enough for him to get through the day.
