Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My son is 3 1/2 months old, and will not take a bottle. I have a few big events coming up and I need him to take a bottle just for that day. What can I do?

Just keep offering.  Basically every meal, offer a bottle first.  He might eventually get it.  If not, you may have to have whoever is feeding your son for that day consider using a dropper or something.
Also, have someone else offering. Don't even be in the room. Have them sit somewhere other than where you ordinarily nurse. If he smells/senses you, he'll be less likely to take it.
u should try the brest feeding bottles dat are soft and feel like your breast so ur baby can think ur breast feeding him.
