Finally, it was like a light bulb went off in my head. What if we "tricked" him? By this, I mean make him think he is getting the boob when he's really getting bottle. So I gave it a try, I strapped on the "My Brest Friend," laid him down, and watched him root as I scooted the bottle in there. Sure enough, he took it! Once we figured that out, the next time my husband gave him a bottle we had the baby lay on a pillow (that I use while nursing sometimes) on his side like he was breast-feeding, waited for him to root, and slid the bottle in his mouth. It worked again!
If you or someone you know is having trouble with a "bottle strike" baby, give this trickery a try...it may just work.
