My baby rejects milk bottle
My baby rejects milk bottle. I breastfed him since he was born. He is now 4 months and starting to teethe. I'm expressing my milk because he's biting me but he still rejects the bottle.
The child might be having nipple confusion. Use feeding bottles with nipples of the same consistency as yours. It may sound weird, but check the nipples of feeding bottles for texture, size etc.
Some babies may have difficulty drinking from the bottle because the milk does not flow properly. Airflow is important so the milk will flow easily.
Check your feeding schedule. Whether you're breastfeeding or using a bottle, make sure that you feed the baby at the same time, same location if possible.
You can try to change the nipple on the bottle. Dr. Brown's bottle has a nipple that is shaped similar to the mother's nipple, maybe you can try this bottle or you can feed baby the milk with a spoon.
