    Hi all. My 3 month old is breastfed and bottle fed (so partner can do some of the feeds), but lately baby is completely refusing the breast and only wants the bottle. He just screams if I try to breastfeed so have to resort to using expressed milk in a bottle. Any tips on how I can get him to breastfeed again as it is so much easier than getting a bottle prepared and I miss the connection.

    Lots of skin on skin time and snuggles.
    You could try visiting a lactation consultant. Also try a slower flow nipple on your bottle so it is not so easy on bub anymore?
