I need some help. My youngest is almost 14 weeks old and I go back to work on Monday. (Not happy about this at all, but I teach and have to finish the year) Nursing has gone so smoothly that we haven't been using bottles and now we're finding that she won't drink from a bottle. We're going to keep trying over the weekend but I don't know what we'll do come next week. My other two transitioned without a problem, so this is new. Has anyone else had problems with a baby not taking a bottle? Have you found anything that helps in the transition? Thanks!Answer Question

I had the Same issue with my first and second children. A Straw will work, either like a dropper or in a cup. My DS was 4 months old when he learned to drink from a straw. So I got the take along cups with straws. There are also feeding cups and spoons. using bottles is not something that needs to be learned. I also would suggest a SOFT TIP sippy cup.
