will he take boob from a bottle? if so its not the bottle that's the issue but the taste of the formula, you could try a differnt formula? (I would guess the increased night feeding is a growth spurt, they have one around now...not conveniente with going back to work though) {{hugs}} it'll sort soon and I'm sure better advice will be along too!

Have you tried milk from a sippy cup. We didn't bother with a bottle as dd just chewed it and wouldn't drink. If you are using avent bottles you could just buy a sippy cup top and put it on the bottle instead of the teat.
