  • Make sure he is not hungry and let him play with it and experiment with it. Leave it in a certain place in the kichen for an hour or so and don't associate any pressure with it. It can take awhile before they get the hang of it.

  • What elizabr said is exactly what i did with my son who was exclusively breastfed and never used a bottle and it worked for him.
