instead of a bottle try a sippie cup my daughter is almost a year ive been breastfeeding full time since birth & i tried giving her a bottle at 4 months but she refused but now that shes older i breastfeed her in the am when she 1st akes up, feed her baby food at lunch time. breast feed twice for a snack, feed her2 jars for dinner & give her a sippie in between so she doesn't dehydrate!

Instead of trying to get her to take the bottle do the sippy cup. At first put a little bit of water in it and let her play with it. Once she figures it out then nurse her in the morning and right before bed only during the day do whole milk in the sippy. The amount of milk she should be getting actually goes down after the age of 1 yrs. She should be doing about 3 glasses of milk a day.
