Please help

My daughter just turned 2 months and she refuses to take a bottle. I tried a avent bottle then was advised to use a Nuk she did take that but now she refuses to take it. I go back to work in January and am really worried that she won''t take a bottle. What do I do doc?

This is not always an easy problem to solve.Many babies do prefer the Nuk teat which she also won't take anymore.Go to this website which offers excellent advice: As your time is now relatively short before you return to work it may be necessary to consult your nearest baby clinic for advice.Perhaps our regular forum memebrs will also have some advice for you.

My son was the same. Didnt want all these kind of bottles. Nuk, Avent. What i did, i bought the normal silicon teats, the ones used ages ago, yes still on the shelves and replaceed the ones from NUK, and he ate well afterwards. These other teats are hard for other kids to undertand. Try that maybe it might just be the confusion. Hope all goes well.
