We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

Getting baby to take a bottle!

Ok ladies, hit me with your top tips!

DD is 14 weeks and screams if we try to feed her formula. Have tried most bottle types, and warming the milk. DH has tried when I’m out the house. All to no avail.

Anything else I can try?

She’s taken a few oz twice before when you I was out, but seems to resist completely now.

Going to defrost some breast milk I pumped a few weeks ago and try her on that, but would prefer her to take formula if possible.

Any suggestions at all?

Have you tried mixing expressed with formula? I added an oz of formula to expressed to begin and gradually increased it until he would take either
