Hi Fatima :) Have you checked to see the temperature of the milk/formula you are giving her? if it is too cold or too hot she is not going to take to it as easily. Also maybe try different teats? Sometimes babies don't like a specific shaped teat, my son refused to take the common type and would only drink from a teat that had an odd compression along the length. Also check the flow of milk that comes out. If they are trying to drink and getting too much or trying and getting almost nothing babies will often dislike taking a bottle. The only other thing i can suggest is to talk in soothing tones while trying to get her to take the bottle, it may not help but it might make her feel closer to you like she usually is, presuming your not trying that already :) I Hope this can help you in some way :)
