Quoting Brittney:



I think it's probably b/c he likes it from the breast the best...lol. I definately think babies like that bonding, that warmth of their mother, so they figure out what they want very quickly. Do you warm it up if you give it to him from a bottle? I know my son would not take a bottle with my milk in it at all. It didn't matter who was trying feed him, he absolutely refused.  If you can I would just keep trying to give him a bottle of expressed milk twice a week, b/c he's still young and its easier breaking their habits when they are still young.  I didn't do that and by the time my son was 6-7 months I couldn't leave his side b/c he would refuse to eat from a bottle. 



 



I agree, my daughter didnt want a bottle either, only breast, my fiance, wanted to feed her too and she just didnt want it!! I breast fed till 9mo( however with my 1st daughter it was only till 6mo) to each their own I guess!! we still kept up with giving her a bottle from time to time and daddy did get some feeding time in even if it was only an oz at a time!!

try the tommee tippee closer to nature range of bottles, they are designed for breastfeed babies (formula too) but the teat is designed more like a breast, they are the best bottle i have ever used, baby wont tell the difference, less stress for you and baby

i to had that problem the only way i could get my daughter take the bottle was by having some one else feed it to her and i would have t leave the room. they say it bc they can smell you and they want the real stuff instead
