“I use nanobebe bottles for my breast fed baby! She loves them!”

“The Tommee Tippee closer to nature teats and bottle are meant to be the closest thing.”

“My son took mam. Keep trying.”

“My daughter only liked dr brown bottles.”

“Just go with a cup. Forget bottles.”

“We used Adiri Natural Nurser.”

“Boon Nursh bottles they are silicone bottles with a hard outer shell. They collapse while drinking so baby does not swallow air.”

“My kids used mimijumi and Playtex ( the ones with the bags).”

“I had that problem when I first went back to work. Tried different bottles with no success. Finally realized the milk wasn’t warm enough for baby and he would finally take a bottle once it was hotter. We used Avent bottles.”

“My daughter was the same way and unfortunately no matter what we tried she would not accept anything else besides breast. She would not eat for 6-8 hours if I was not there. Not even breastmilk from a bottle, I hope you find something that works for her. Maybe a shirt of Mom’s with her scent on it near her during feeding times might help.”
