my son refused bottles, even if i was gone at work for 8 hrs, he just wouldnt eat for 8 hrs (poor babysitter) so i would go home on my lunch break and nurse and then turn around and rush back to work.
try sippys, he liked the $2 ones at walmart with the soft nipples, NUBYS (sp?) that being said, he would NEVER take formula or breast milk out of the sippys so if you have to be away and they are starving, maybe it's time to start cereal...i started both my kids on cereal at 4 months...
another thought, my son wouldnt take bottles from anyone, and my daughter wouldnt either until i tried to give her one...i assumed she wouldnt take one from me because she would know its me, but ever since she took a bottle (breast milk) from me, now she will take one from anybody.
