My Addie fought the bottle for a LONG time so I feel your pain. None of the recommended tricks worked for us, I was so close to giving up. Here's what did work for me: everyday at one naptime I would nurse her until she was all but asleep and then pull the old switch aroo. For weeks it resulted in tears and a wide awake baby so I had to start the process of getting her back to sleep all over again but SLOWLY she got the hang of it. It still took awhile before DH could give her a bottle but she finally will take one from him too! Don't give up. I agree with the other ladies to try pumping earlier in the day if possible, your supply should be better.
