Once you ve chosen a bottle experiment with different temperatures. This is my biggest and best tip.
When the baby is.
Breastfed baby bottle refusal. Your baby was recently weaned and wants to continue breastfeeding. One of my twins had to have his bottle. A very sleepy baby may accept a bottle without even realizing it so if your baby s resisting try slipping in that target near the end of a nap when she s still half asleep.
Your baby isn t hungry enough to want feeding. Try the sleep and switch. Bring the nipple no bottle attached to the baby s mouth and rub it along the baby s gums and inner cheeks.
Once the baby accepts the nipple in her mouth encourage her to suck on the nipple. Warming the nipple just run it under warm water may help too. The following reasons are some of the most common things to look out for if your baby refuses the bottle.
Pace yourself with paced feeding. Your baby is feeling sick colicky or otherwise unwell enough to feed. All this does is creates even more nipple.
What to do when your breastfed baby is refusing a bottle bottle type. Do not switch bottle types. My baby won t take a bottle.
Without the bottle attached.
