I think it depends on the reason. If you are nursing, and trying to get your baby to take a bottle, I have heard that someone else should offer the bottle other than you because they will want the breast if you offer it. I have also heard to make sure they are very hungry so that they will take it.

If it is a bottle fed baby, I might wait. They might not be hungry at that time. I know E sometimes refuses a bottle because she's just not very hungry one day.
