Refusing to bottle-feed during weaning

It's not always easy to get your baby to accept a bottle during weaning! For the moment, he's only known breastfeeding and this change may worry him:

  • A bottle and its nipple do not have the same softness and warmth as a mother's breast.
  • The more you insist, the more pressure your child will feel and the more he will refuse to feed by sucking on the bottle.
  • You can try changing the shape and material of the nipple, as some babies will accept silicone nipples but refuse rubber, or vice versa.
