Answer: Hi Mommy, one of the milestone you are trying to achieve by giving your baby bottle which is great. Introduce baby to bottle has to be fun for baby so that they can take it happily and your life could also be easier. Here are few tips i used to convince by baby to take bottle. Hopefully this will help you as well.
Offer him a bottle in the evening after his regular feeding to get him used to the nipple. Start with a small amount of breast milk – about half an ounce.
Try a slow-flow nipple. For some babies, especially infants, a regular nipple may flood them with milk. If your baby gags when using a bottle, replace his nipple with a slow-flow one to see if that helps.
Let someone else feed him the first bottle. If you try to give your baby his first bottle, he may wonder why he's not getting your breast. He may be less confused if someone else makes the introduction. Ask your mother, your partner, a childcare provider, or a friend to help.
Try to be out of the house. A baby can smell his mother, even from a distance, so he may know that you (and your breasts) are just in the next room.
Answer: I tried all these methods but all in vain. She is not ready to take bottle.instead of taking she vomits out the milk.

Question: My baby is 3 1/2 months old. I'm breast feeding her. She is not drinking milk as before. How do I know if she getting enough milk.?
Answer: Hi dear, we all have this doubt that if baby's tummy full or not and we sometime try to either force baby to take more or stop before the tummy full.
here are few signs I have listed as per my experience with babies:
Closing lips. Just as a hungry baby suckles readily, a full baby zips his lips, as if to say, "No more, thanks."
Turning his head away. A more forceful version of closing his lips is to move his entire head away from the food source. If your baby turns away from your breast or a bottle, you shouldn't force him to eat.
Decreasing or stopping sucking. Some full babies will stay latched on to the nipple but not suck any more—at which point, it's time to gently end the session.
Spitting out the nipple or falling asleep when full. After about 15 to 20 minutes of feeding, a full baby will often act drowsy and may even fall asleep.
Showing increasing interest in surroundings rather than eating. At around 4 months old many babies begin to get distracted during feedings, as their awareness of the world around them grows. A hungry baby will put this curiosity on hold long enough to feel sated. When he begins looking around more distractedly, it's a sign he's had plenty.
