Hi, am Nigerian, my son is 10 months old and won't eat. Have tried lots of food, milk and even different feeding styles but non will work. I noticed he will take food from bottle once in a while and that's why am looking for a very good bottle for him.

Food should never be fed by bottle. Always feed food by spoon. It is something they have to learn how to do. Feeding by bottle is not safe and also does not teach them how to eat. Developmentally they will not learn how to eat. By feeding by spoon they figure out how to use their tongue and how different textures feel in their mouth. Food under the age of 12 months is only for learning how to eat and the different textures. Their main nutrition comes from their formula or breastmilk, so that is why you want them learning this now before food becomes their main source of nutrition.
