Hey there, my 4 month old is exclusively breast fed but have given her the odd bottle when I can't find her. It was tough at first but we soon realised that changing from medela to mam bottles and from aptamil to Hipp did the trick. The last time she took a bottle was Xmas day but tried to give her a bottle on the 3rd jan and she screamed the house down. Two more attempts were made that day and the next, checking bottles were thoroughly clean and milk tastes ok. Have tried her yesterday on faster flowing test but still no joy. She rejects both me and my husband and we were both fine before. Any ideas what to try next??

In first sentence, meant "when I can't feed her"!!!

At 4 months you could cut your losses and start trying with a sippy cup? My EBF DD takes a bottle but am thinking of starting her on a cup sooner not later as I understand it's better for the teeth long term.
Also is she pre-teething? Mine feeds fussily when her gums hurt, though no teeth cutting through yet.
