A step by step guide to help your breastfed baby take a bottle
bottle refusal program with Susie Prout - Australian lactation and breastfeeding consultant

Does this sound familiar?

  • Panic is setting in. You are going back to work soon (or maybe just want a night out with the girls) but you are worried your baby will refuse and be hungry when you are out?
  • You are buying ALL the bottles, ALL the teats - thinking this might be the problem?
  • You and your baby are engaged in a constant battle with trying to get them to suck on the bottle
  • You are googling bottle refusal at 2am!
  • You are not sure whether your baby even knows how to take a bottle, or maybe they know but don't want it.
  • You don't even know where to start - when to express, what about formula, how much to give…


If you were nodding yes to any of these, then this program is for you.

Introducing the Bottle Refusal Program

A simple step by step program that will arm you with the confidence and skills to help your breastfed baby take a bottle, when they normally refuse!

I have taken my exact framework that I use with my 1 to 1 clients when teaching them how to give their breastfed baby a bottle.

This includes how much to give, when to try, how to get around bottle refusal and what to do if they still wont take it. I also teach you how to ensure it doesn't affect your milk supply OR your breastfeeding relationship - and recorded it in a step by step, easy to follow, self paced online program.


Who am I to talk about this stuff?

In case we haven't met, I'm Susie Prout. I am a Registered Nurse, Midwife and International Board certified Lactation Consultant from Perth.

I am also a mum of 3 little ones - I've been there with the breastfeeding and I've been there with the trying to give a bottle! I know the feeling of panic all too well when I have had to leave my baby when I knew they wouldn't take that bottle!
I am dedicated to helping mums just like you to overcome the overwhelm with feeding your baby!
My life's work is making feeding easy! I am also the creator of the highly popular and successful Breastfeeding Success Membership - where I teach new mums everything they need to know to successfully breastfeed their babies.
I know the panic, I know the overwhelm and I know the loneliness that comes with googling all the things at 2AM.
I know that you need ONE space, just ONE person to support you.

"SUSIE!!! I bought your bottle refusal course out of sheer desperation the other night after spending what I reckon would have been at least $200 on different bottles promising the world. 

My son took any bottle so easily but my daughter just didn't want a bar of it. My anxiety returning to work had peaked so much that I'd worked out an elaborate plan to come home during the day to feed her.

But after literally 2 days she's HAPPILY taking the bottle - not fully or perfectly every time but almost!

I actually cannot believe it. I'm so grateful!"
