I am having real problems getting my 11 week to take bottle. She was fine when I tried her at about 8 weeks but now screams if I so much as put bottle near her. So far have tried breast milk/ Aptimil, Avent/ MAM bottles, me & DP tried to feed her and also tried feeding cup all to no avail. I have to leave her for most of the day next weekend with DP & at wits end!!!

a] you could wait until she is really hungry then slip it in squeezing some milk out to get ther interest and walking around, don't know why but i have found it helps to get a breast baby to drink from a bottle better.

or

b]start to breast feed her then slip the bottle in.

I would use the MAM teats as more breast like on the Avent bottle just loosen the ring a little to let air in, i know the MAM are designed to do that continuosly but i haven't found them to be that effective to be honest.
