Kiwil Lemon's mom is correct. Babies don't have to work as hard with the bottle and will start to prefer the easier milk. If you plan to breast feed you need to do that more often than the bottle, and use the bottle only in emergencies until he is older. Keep trying -( it could be the food also or any medicine you've been taking)

PS. Even if he eventually does prefer the bottle -it's not the end of the world. One of my sons preferred the bottle early the other breast fed for a year. They are both ok. Bottle feeding is also a bonding time if you are holding him-- it is also wonderful for your husband to have that chance for bonding while feeding. It can also give you a little freedom. Soooo don't feel like a failure- remember your own kids are going to be different and individuals- just like the ones in your classrom. You are NOT a failure.
