What formula tastes the closest to breast milk? Trying to go from breast to bottle he doesn't mind the bottle so much as the formula what formula would be bes? I've had a breast infection for 2 months and been on 4 different meds baby had thrush we are both on diflucan and its been over a week and niether of us are geting better we just keep pasiing it back and forth even with the meds this is a last resort hoping it will only be temp. and any tips on how to get him to take a bottle would be extremely helpful too thanks!

None of them really not that I've tasted them but smell alone. Just keep offering it he will get used to it. If you can pump maybe try half and half or get a milk donor.

Honestly I don't know, and have never heard of one specific one being similar to the taste of breast milk. We spent almost $100 on different formulas before we FINALLY found one that our son liked and did not have a bad reaction to. Ask around to see if anyone has sample packets of formula they wont use, or if you have to, go buy the smallest container of formula that you can find for him to try. If you have any close friends that have little ones on formula, ask if you can have a couple of scoops to let your little one try.
