Jaimee won't take a bottle anymore =O

Well the past few days I noticed she was not eating out of certain bottles so we tried new brands. Now today she would not take a bottle or eat from one at all. She cried and cried, so the sitter figured she had a sore belly and tried burping her and walking and bouncing all day. DH and I also tried everything. Finally I just gave her the boob and she chowed right down and passed right out like a light. I have to work so I really need her to take a bottle. Any suggestions?

Could she be teething? My older son nursed and took bottles away from me, and he always would nurse, but sometimes not take bottles when he was cutting a tooth. My younger one gets MM from bottles only, and the last week or so he really decreased the amount he would take the bottle, and Friday when  I came home, he had  a front tooth. I don't really think there is much you can do about it. Try switching bottles again I guess to see if one bothers her less.
