As all may know. My son has been EBF since birth.

I have some Pumped milk and Would like him to take it when I step out. I have 3 different kinds of bottles and he wont take a one. 

Dr.Brown

Dollar tree Bottle

Playtex air Vent 

Is it even worth the time or am I better off getting a sippy cup?

 Avent bottles are the closet to the breast as far as how they mouth forms around the base and the length of the nipple. They are super pricy though. I would suggest buying just one and giving it a shot.

At this point I'd probably just try a sippy cup.

My DD refused bottles at around 3 mos old.  So I am pretty limited on things dh and I can do as well if we want to go out.  Haven't gone out alone yet since she's been born.  We recently tried bottles again and she didn't fuss about it, but she seemed to not know how to use it.  So we're doing the Nuby sippy cup with handles and she seems to be slowly learning how to work it.  She's not good at it yet, but getting acquainted with it.  So yep - I agree, a sippy is good at this point.  :-)
