Try, try, and try again! That's all that I really know to do. Maybe try squeezing some milk out of the bottle nipple while trying to put it in her mouth. Also try a nipple shield when nursing, it's more bottle nipple shaped and may ease her into the shape of it. Good luck!

Try to get someone else to bottle feed her. Bcuz when u feed her she expects to b breastfed. Good luck(=

You can try a tommie tippy they are supposed to mimic a nipple. My son has one it taught him to latch on.

i agree with everyone else. just keep at it... she's human. she will give in when she's hungry and you're not offering the boob. good luck.

I agree with having someone else trying to feed her. and also try different bottles. We used the brown soft bottle nipples because the silicone clear kind was too hard for her to latch.

She smells your milk. I agree with the others, you should try having someone else give her the bottle. See how that works. Good luck! :)

Ive tried the brown ones too, like you said the clear ones are a bit too hard but even the brown ones dont work... Ive tried the bigger nipples like the ones shaped like an actual nipple nd all she does is play with them with her tongue lol ive tried soooooo many different kind its ridiculous
