Hi☺ My baby has been breastfed for the last 5mnths and I'm not producing enough breast milk to keep her weight up to what i feel is adequate for her age n height...any suggestions are greatly appreciated. She doesn't like the bottle or the taste of formula when i try to give it to her.

Thanks for the info. Yes, if she smells me or hears my voice she won't take the bottle. Last night after my son's bball practice she ate gladly ate 3 purees, then i nursed her again after her bath n she's been. sleeping for 9 hrs now. Thanks for your advice, with warming the nipple n having someone else feed her the bottle at the beginning.
