There are bottles that are specially designed for breastfed babies. Usually, moms are trying to avoid nipple confusion so they continue breastfeeding while giving some bottles too - but your baby may like these bottles better because they are more similar to the breast. Look at bottles like Avent, Breast Flow, Tommee Tippee, Calma (from Medela), Born Free or you could even try a sippy cup instead. Breastfed babies can also be very sensitive to temperature. You may need to get the temperature just right at first. Also try having somebody else give the bottle. That can help too.
