Breastfed baby rejecting the bottle - help please!

Hi there
I'm struggling to persuade my four month old baby to take the bottle. She is exclusively breastfed, although we went through a period from about two to three months where she took a bottle of formula at the last feed. But in the last few weeks, she has refused to take the bottle that she took so well just days before. We've changed formula because we live abroad, and the brand I bought in the UK isn't available here (but she also rejected the UK formula latterly).
Every time we try, she cries inconsolably. Any ideas?

I can't add anything to help you I'm afraid but can offer consolation it's not just you! My 4 month old screams and cries and pushes the bottle away. I'm resigning myself to the fact that she might just have to go straight to a sippy cup instead.

Google NCT bottle feeding for breastfed babies and it will take you to a PDF with many suggestions.
