She stopped being able to take a bottle for some reason. she cries when iput the nipple in her mouth and when itry to hold it in her mouth she gags.
i tried it carefully and letting her take it on her own accord and that had the same result
i have bottlefed her my milk before so i could have two consequetive drinks and not worry
how can iget her to take a bottle? did this ever happen to anyone else?
i unfroze 4 oz of milk for christmas and ended up bfing all day because she wouldn't take the bottle and the milk went to waste.

How old is she? She maybe confused and not understand that this is were food comes from too. Also is the thawed breast milk warmed up, she may hate it cold. Also you could try having your drink at night and then pump and dump. Any that you don't pump out will most likely be precessed by your body by the morning feeding provided that she is old enough to go all night. You could also try different nipples, maybe a shorter or smaller one is more her size. Other then that if she is old enough to pick it up on her own. Keep it with some water in it available to her and see if she starts experimenting with it, as with any other toy.

How long did you go without giving her a bottle? Baby become more stubborn as they get older. My daughters both started off taking the occasional bottle but stopped around two months and would never take the bottle again.
How old is your daughter? You could try a cup or a different kind of bottle. Also try having someone else give her the bottle.
I know it can be frustrating, I couldn't leave my first for more than two hours until she was 10 months old, and it'll probably be the same way with my younger one too.
