It's really important to see a pediatrician if your baby is sick and won't take a bottle. Sometimes a baby won't take formula like Similac, but they will drink pumped breastmilk. Try pumping and feeding her breastmilk in a bottle. It can be challenging to get a baby to take a bottle, the distract and feed method in this article has worked for numerous people. We highly recommend trying it with a healthy baby.
My baby is six and a half months old. I have been breastfeeding her ever since she was born. I will be returning to work in May, but I am worried that she won't take a bottle of breast milk. Is it too late for me to express some milk for her to try from a bottle? Will she be ok to have cow's milk? Is it best in a bottle or sippy cup?
I managed to get my 3-month-old to take a bottle last night for a dream feed by starting with the breast and then switching over to a bottle. If I continue this, is it likely he will start to accept a bottle when awake? Similar to you he took a bottle with no problems when he was first introduced, but he was not given it consistently and now at three months is flat out refusing it.
