Two things to consider: 1. Nipple confusion - is the nipple of the bottle soft just like your nipple? 2. Did you taste your stored BM once thawed? Is there a sour, rusty taste? I experienced the same thing. Under further investigation, he didn’t like the thawed BM because it had a rusty taste to it (Lipase). Although still normal and healthy for the baby. Some babies don’t like the taste.

There's no such thing as nipple confusion, it is more like flow confusion.

I used Avent eversince...are there other brand compatible to avent bottles? Yes i think its nipple confusion coz my thawed breastmilk dont have that rusty taste, stll tastes like a fresh milk .. Tried cup feeding just now with my handexpressed milk.. at first he hurriedly consumed it..then maybe he got irritated because of its slow flow..
