problem with first years breastflow bottles?

Has anybody tried the first year breastflow bottles? I have been exclusively breastfeeding and my daughter is 2 months old. I've been so excited to try the breastflow bottles but it seems that whenever I try to put it in her mouth or let her latch on she makes a face and pushes out the nipple with her tongue. I have read really good reviews about this bottle. Has anyone had this problem before ?

I didn't ever try the first year breastflow bottles, but it is very very common for a breastfed baby to reject a bottle... any bottle. Some babies do have a preference and will drink from one type of bottle but not another. Trial and error is the only way to find out what works for your LO. However that being said, it may be that your LO just needs to get used to being fed from a bottle. Are you going back to work soon? Does you baby "need" to learn to drink from a bottle?

I personally was never able to get my 2nd daughter to drink from a bottle. But as I stay home with her it really wasn't a big issue so I didn't force the issue. I did try several bottles, and kept offering every once in a while... but ultimately just decided that it wasn't worth the fight.
