Answer: It's common for babies to refuse formula in a bottle initially. Don't give up too easily – it may take more than a few tries to get your baby to drink formula from a bottle. She may refuse a bottle the first few times it's offered, especially if you're the one offering it. That's because your baby can smell you and would probably prefer the real thing, which is sweeter. First try & get her used to sucking milk through bottle. Express your own milk & start giving it to her through bottle. Once she gets used to taking a bottle of breast milk, the transition to formula milk may be a bit easier, though she may turn up her nose at what's in the bottle. To make this transition smoother, let your partner offer the first few bottles. You might also try giving the bottle when your baby is hungry rather than at a feeding when she might be nursing as much for comfort as for nourishment.
