    Oh and did you feed her? Or dh? Where you in the room? It needs to not be you and you need to be out of the house! She can smell you and smell your milk. Babies noses are amazingly stronger then adults.

    Also, maybe have someone else give the bottle when you are not arround.
    DD use to REFUSE to take a bottle from me, or if I was in the room. She knows the real stuff is so close

    I only have 1-2ozs (mostly 1) of BM frozen so she would either eat the 1oz and then eat the formula or eat the entire stash of frozen, which isn't very much, about 5oz now

    I skipped a bottle when I was little and went straight to a sippy cup. You could try that maybe? I'm thinking she is probably too young for that though.

    After she gets use to eating formula, then you can try and feed her.
    Formula tastes nasty, I don't blame them for not wanting to take it right off

    Formula does taste nasty for them. Bm changes flavors every feed for them. No two feeds are the same!

    Maybe after she's taken 2-3 bottles from him, then try and bottle feed her? It's really trial and error and frustration with some babies

    this sucks..

    After the incident where she threw up and refused to nurse the next day, i tried a bM bottle and she refused the bottle then and eventually nursed... I'll have DH try it when he gets home.
