Help weaning from breast to bottle with baby refusing bottle

Tina - posted on 06/20/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




Any tips on what to do? My 4 month old point blankly refuses to take the bottle now even though she has taken the odd bottle before. As soon as she either sees the bottle or feels the teat in her mouth she has a fit! Have been trying for a week now and no joy at all. Need advice as need her weaned in a few weeks as going back to work.

My son was about 10 and half month when I went from breast to bottle and I started my pumping and giving him breast milk in the bottle then I made the final switch after a couple weeks slowly start replacing breast milk bottles with formula bottles one at time until she is totally switched. If she refuses to take a bottle just keep offering it to her and don't give her anything else she will get hungry enough she will take it...GOOD LUCK.
