Or is it too late, lol? I exclusively breastfeed my almost 11 week old baby. Yesterday I pumped a bottle so I could go out to eat without having to feed him and actually enjoy my food for a change. But he wouldn't take it, not from me and not from my husband. I would really like to be able to leave him with a babysitter for our anniversary (still a couple months away) but I can't if he won't eat from a bottle!

In a couple of months your baby will be able to drink from a cup! Some breastfed babies never will take a bottle, even if they get hungry enough. They will shut down first and fall asleep. It's a lucky baby that never has to go throught that.

I would keep trying now, because the longer you wait the harder it will be. I used Avant bottles with my son because the nipples are shaped more like real ones. Try different nipples and keep trying to have other people feed when you're not around.
