Bottle refusal



Feeding your baby from a bottle for the first time doesn’t always happen easily. Suckling from an artificial teat is different from suckling from the breast so your baby may need to learn how to do this. Persistence is the key, however there are many different teats available on the market, as well as different shaped bottles to hold, which may help your situation. So try a few different options. If you are still having difficulty, discuss this with your nurse or health care professional who can offer you personalised advice.
