  • Maybe she's not ready. You shouldn't put food in the bottle. Just wait another week or two and try again feeding her with a spoon. Good Luck!

  • Agreed. Wait until she'll take it on a spoon. Have you tried very runny cereal? Get a good deep spoon and fill it with runny rice cereal. Put the spoon on her lower lip and let her sort of suck it off. Once she does that well, start making the cereal less runny and put it further in her mouth. **When I first started with my daughter, I would sit down in front of her with a bowl of my own oatmeal. I would take a bite and make a big deal about how yummy it was. Then I would offer her a bite. She thought it was great.

    Good Luck!
