Both of my sons didn't but they would refuse the bottle because it hurt. But every child is different. I was told by a health nurse that they might refuse food and their milk when teething.

She still ate her food, but would not take a bottle. I would rock her to sleep and then give her the bottle. It only lasted for two days tops.
