How can I get my breastfed eight month old to start taking a bottle?

Hi there. It proves easier to get a breastfed baby to take a bottle if it is someone else providing the bottle. This way the baby doesn’t smell the milk on you, and they won’t be fussing trying to find the breast. I would attempt with you just in another room to start with. Then if all else fails it may be a case of just trial and error with bottles, my breastfed son would only accept Mam bottles.
