You wanted to breastfeed ypur baby because youre a good ma! Breastfeeding is such a great gift to your baby with so many amazing health benefits.
But, no advice, really. None of mine ever took a bottle.

My breastfed kids would never take a bottle either. I gave up and just breastfed.

Well we were able to get my youngest to take a bottle for about 3 weeks while we went to dinner or something. Then she refused so until she was old enough to wait on it I just stayed home. Blah :(

My youngest started refusing bottles at 4 months, he'd only had one. He's 15.5 months (and still breastfeeding) we tried a cup but he mostly chews on it:-)

If your the one giving the bottle then that's the problem. Why take a fake nipple when the real thing is right there. Give baby and bottle to someone else and leave. If baby takes it great, if not that's fine too. Babies won't starve themselves. Also if your concerned that you'll be gone for more than 4 hours and baby will starve, don't be. What if baby was sleeping that long. You'd be happy right and not stressing?
