Breast/bottle : This is not unusual. You may find that she will take the bottle more readily from someone else than from you. Let daddy or grandmother try! when she smells your milk, and you are giving her a bottle, she gets confused. Don't worry. Most babies will take a bottle when they are hungry enough and the breast is not available.
