I'm trying to get my nearly 7 month old to take a bottle but am struggling. I've searched old threads and tried everything suggested - different people feeding, different bottles/teats, formula and expressed milks .. etc etc .. you get the picture.

She'll hold the bottle herself but just seems to chew the teat and won't suck on it. She's the same with a spouted cup as well - I've tried her with water and formula in them.

Help please as I'm really in need of a few hours sleep and would like someone else to feed her just for the odd night when I'm really tired.

Could you try giving her a small glass, from what I gather she could be drink out of a cup with a weeks practice?
