My son is nearly 8mn and I need to drop a bf to a bottle or cup.. He's not having it. I also have a wend away planned (wedding) v soon and he has to be able to take a bottle then.. Any ideas folks?

Have you tried getting your DH/DP to give a bottle? Some babies won't take a bottle when boobs are within view, but will when their mum isn't there. Also different babies get on better with different brands of bottle, or different types of cup, have you tried more than one type (not ideal having to buy lots of different ones, I know)?

DS2 (just 6 months) has no interest in bottles but will drink EBM from a Doidy cup - might be worth a try?
