Mine didn’t want any kind of bottle. At 3 months old I bring her to KKH to consult a PD. Due to my baby’s weight is around 90% she ask me not to worry when she is hungry she will drink as I’m putting her with my Mother in law when i return to work the following month. Now she is 6 months coming 7 , she is still not taking any bottle. PD said we can start solids at 4 month old. So during week days she eats rice purée mix with breast milk during the day. And I breastfeed her during the night. Right now we increase her feed to 2 times a days after she is 6 months. It worked out well for me. Just that she wakes up a lot of times during the night.

My LO still latches on at night. She hates the taste of formula. She would vomit if you try to stick a bottle of formula in her mouth.
