We'd been feeding DS expressed breast milk on a Friday & Saturday night since about 3 weeks old so that DH could help with night feeds so I could get a bit more sleep and it's not been a problem at all. Now all of a sudden he's refusing the bottle completely. I am now gutted that I'm missing out on those few extra hours sleep. Any suggestions of how we can encourage him back onto the bottle??

maybe try it in the morning instead of at night? (you can have a lie in)

I had a similar problem with my DD around that age. She was taking the odd bottle of BM fine but then one day just point blank refused. We tried different times of the day/ being out of the house and different bottles but nothing worked. We stopped for a few weeks then I read on here about NUK bottles and I brought one off amazon with a silicon teat and she took to it the second time perfectly and we haven't had any problems since.

Good luck
