If your daughter: won't drink from the bottle and your breast milk supply has decreased compared to her need,you can try giving her a cup of whole milk or formula (either a sippy cup or a regular cup).She is old enough to introduce this. She probably won't drink as much from the cup at the beginning, but once she gets used to it,she will probably do well. If she still won't drink enough, please speak to her doctor. ...Read more

You can try offering the breast in the evening and in the morning, when she's most likely to want to snuggle. It also helps if you give the breast and someone else gives the bottle. Don't worry too much. If she gets some breast milk, she will still get the benefits. ...Read more
