Well not my first, she makes me proud every day, but....
She took a bottle!!! Well, kind of. Fussed around for a bit, took some but with no real intention. H then warmed it up again as she'd taken so long over it and she guzzled the last 30-40mls!
We've had such a battle with her for weeks and weeks, i must have spent over £50 on various different bottles and teats etc which has mostly ended up with her screaming the house down and 2 incredibly stressed parents, but the last couple of nights she's started to get the hang of it and been less distressed. I still think we have a very long way to go, and we will probably go backwards at some point (2moro night probably!) but this is a HUUUGE step for her and I'm so immensly proud of her.
And then she came downstairs and Federer lost his Wimbledon match, so y'know, amazing things happen when my baby bottle feeds. Just sayin...

Well done A!
When my A went through a similar bottle refusing phase it was only when I made the bottle really warm than he actually took some, and I was equally proud/relieved.

Yay! Which bottles worked for you?

Ah that's brilliant. Well done A and well done you too, sounds like it's been v stressful.

The milk was really warm, too warm almost, but H had assumed she'd take a while to settle down so did it like that so it'd be right temp when she was ready for it, but she settled down immediately and seemed to like it that way. Considerably warmer than what she gets from me which is weird, but whatever, I'll take it!
We're using the MAM bottles but i got a size 2 teat as i think she was getting frustrated at the slower flow. It remains to be seen how tonight will go, but we shall see!

That's exactly what happened with my A, given he used to take it at any temperature, even fridge temp I was surprised it was that, but he then refused cooler milk until only a month a go at 2 years old.
