Q: My baby won't take a bottle; advice anyone?I am breast feeding, but I need my daughter to take a bottle so that I can start working again. I didn't have any trouble with my 1st, so this is all new to me. We have been trying to give her a bottle for about 2 weeks now. I have my husband or my sister try. My husband thinks it's because the milk flow from the nipple is too much. But I don't think that's the case because she get lots from me and sometimes even chokes because so much comes from me, but she still latches fine on me. She doesn't even latch on the bottle, and she eventually gets frustrated and cries. Do I just need to be patient and wait for her to get the hang of it, or should I start buying more bottles? We're using an Avent 3+ nipple and she's 7 weeks old. Anyone have any similar experiences and found a solution?
