I have an almost three month old baby who is exclusively breastfed. I've been trying to pump and introduce a bottle , but it's not going well. He doesn't seem to understand how to drink from a bottle - he fights it and cries every single time. We've tried a number of bottle and nipple types as well as trying to feed him under different circumstances (ie: when I'm out of the house, when he's sleepy and not super hungry, etc.), but nothing seems to work. He also refuses to take a soother, so I think he might just not get the concept.
Does anyone have advice on how to introduce a bottle with success? Is there something I should be doing?
