Okay...first of all not getting your period yet is normal. With one of my kids, I did not have a period for a year, and I bf also. Secondly, this means you need to use protection when having sex. Just because you have not gotten your period, does not mean you cannot get pregnant. Breast feeding is NOT birth control. So if you have been having unprotected sex, you may want to take a pregnancy test.

I don't know how old your baby is, you did not say. But, I did not try to offer my daughter a bottle until she was 3 months old, and she NEVER would take one. My son on the other hand, I offered a bottle at about 6 weeks, and he could transition between both just fine. It seems the older they are, the less likely they will be to take a bottle. You should not be the one offering it until she is used to it and taking it well. She will smell your breast milk and be less likely to take one. If you are pumping and storing your milk, that is the best thing to give to her since she already knows that smell and taste. If you are offering formula, it may be tricky. She just may never take it because breast milk tastes way better.
