I have a 10 week old baby boy who is breastfed, ive only gave him a bottle maybe 3 times when he was maybe a month old and he couldnt get the hang of it so i went back to just breastfeeding him. I decided to try again a few weeks ago as it is really hard to feed when we are out. I have tried lotsof different bottles and he cant seem to latch to any, he also cannot latch to a soother. He bites it and fiddles around with it then when he cant latch he gets frustrated and cries. Ive given him to other people to get them to try aswell and get the same result. I am getting frustrated and worried I wont be able to do much xmas shopping this year if i cant get him to take a bottle, is there any tricks or ideas you think might help ? Thank you sooo much i cant wait to find something that works !!
