Q&A: Will Baby Take a Bottle?

If I wait too long to introduce a bottle to my baby, will he refuse it?

Maybe. Research has found that most babies (about 70 percent) accept a bottle without a problem at one month, two months, and even three to six months. Most of the rest will accept it if you introduce it with patience and persistence. Don't worry too much: After six months, baby can drink from a cup, so taking a bottle is no longer an issue.
