My baby rejected bottle at 5mo even though he's been fed breastmilk by bottle from time to time since born. However, at 3-4mo , I fully latch him as his feeding drop due to cough so fed on demand. When is the right time to try the bottle again? He's 7mo nw.

My daughter only got a bottle of breast milk a couple of times. She began refusing them after 5 months and never took one again. I stay at home so I didn't need to use them so we just stopped. If you need/want to use a bottle and baby doesn't want to take it you could always try to just put your expressed milk in a cup. Either an open cup or a sippy. You would want to start with a small amount in case baby doesn't want it, you don't want to have to waste milk.
