Don't worry: Make sure your nipples are clean and healthy. Besure not to leave soap residue, sometimes baby tastes something in your milk and is turned off. Try pumping and putting it in a bottle to see if he will take your milk that way. Check to make sure you are not eating things that change the taste of your milk, ie spicy foods, .

Drinking formula from a bottle can be easier for the baby then breastfeeding. That does not mean it is better! Call a lactation consultant and keep trying.
