breast to bottle help

My daughter is 4 months old and I would like her to have a bottle insted of breast. Not all the time just so I can go out without her or have a full nights sleep, so my husband can feed her. I have two older sons and they were very happy to have breast and bottle, but Tabitha will not have anything to do with the bottle. Tabitha also wants feeding two to three times at night and the boys were sleeping through the night at this age so I think shes not getting engough from me. Any tips would help thank you

Have you tried letting someone else feed her the bottle so she doesn't think she will get breast fed? I found with my little girl that she eventually took the bottle from someone else as long as she couldn't see me or hear me. It did take some time thought. I hope this helps
