My 4 month dd2 has been bf up until now, and iv now decided I want to start giving her bottles with the view to weaning her off eventually. I've attempted for nearly a week now an every time she screams when I put the bottle in her mouth. A few times she's been calm at first an she doesn't seem to suck on it right, which I suppose because she is used to bf action, she seems to push it out with her tongue. Has anyone been in any similar circumstances and have any hints and tips that might help? Dd1 seemed to take to the bottle quite easily so this is new to me.

You can keep trying but some babies are just bottle-refusers. Once she can sit up she can have a cup anyway.
