when my daughter was 7 mnths my milk started to dry up bc i was 4 mnths pregnant. it was horrible. she couldnt drink from anything but me. this went on for over a month. i tried everything in the books, like having someone else feed, and differnt nipples, nothing worked! my advice: just keep offering the bottle. let her play with it even. remember that babies put everything in their mouth. eventually she might realize "hey i like what is coming out of this thing".
it got so bad with my daughter that i began to offer her juice in the bottle, as well as formula, bc she was getting dehydrated. i eventually started freezing formula and feeding it to her like water ice, just so she was getting some nourishment! i was running out of ideas! finally one day while she was laying on the floor holding a tiny bottle she began to suck out of it, and from then on she took a bottle. it felt like a miracle!
