Going from breast to bottle...

My little boy is 17 weeks and has been diagnosed with an allergy to cows milk protein which means I've got to stop breast feeding and put him on prescription formula. I've been dairy free for the last month and still his symptoms continue so very sadly I have decided to switch to the formula.

In preparation for this I have tried to give my son a bottle of expressed milk on three occasions and he's absolutely refused it.

I have no idea how I'm going to get him to take this new milk.

Any tips?

Try latex trays instead of silicone - the NUK ones are what we use with ds and the transition from breast to bottle was easy.
