I'm caring for a ten week old breastfed baby who hates every bottle he's ever met. He also refuses pacifiers. I've resorted to squirting milk in his mouth .5mL at a time. Tips?


Take him for a walk and when he's happy and distracted, try giving him the bottle or pacifier per the article's instructions. You can also try a clean finger to see if his sucking reflex starts.
