I'm using chantal's way, feed using bottle from 9am to 8pm, she screamed 3 days, only able to drink
When she is half asleep, once wake up, she will reject again. today she started to drink when awake, but so far till 4 pm only 110ml ( last latch on at 8am) . I'm very worried everyday.
Your girl still drink about 120 every 3 hours? My girl only drink about 100-120 twice today. it is about every 4 hours feeding, but each feeding can last more than 1.5 hours. She still doesn't like bottle, but luckily no more scare and scream already .
Chantal.. I just read of your horrible experience.. Sounds quite bad..
As of yesterday i have not latched her. Trying to make her know that you wont get your top up in night feeds anymore. All will be by bottle.
Today morning at 5am i feed her 100ml (after bout 8hrs sleep in a row)
Then at 9am they feed her 90ml
6:45pm reach home i feed her 70ml
7:15pm another 30ml
8:00pm another 50ml as she wanted to drink.
I stop and given her pacifier to sleep. Think she can still drink but i do not want to overfeed her like the other day.
my baby yesterday daytime intake similar to yours. they can only manage to feed her 90+30+50+70+70 by 7.pm, actually everytime prepare 120ml in bottle, but need to take serval attempts to finish them, not counted wasted milk.
I top up for her @ 7.15pm, (as the earliest I can come back from work is about that time). she's also like sucking non-stop from my breast then at last vomit milk on the pillow. I still latch on her at night time, becos scare her lack of intake, she has passed some pinkage water on day 2 when I started the 9am-7pm bottle training. this is due to lack of water in body... (
how much you feed your girl from 8pm to 5am ? is her whole day intake close to 800?
Hi bbanna, my girl sleeping daily from 8:30pm-7am wake her up for school. Min 10-12hrs sleep per night is her pattern. Now we start work she only manage 10hrs per night with 1 to 2 feeds in between.I notice if I feed once at night her day intake seems to be more and vice versa. Yesterday total 24hrs intake bout 600ml. Today slightly lesser. From 2:30am till now she fallen asleep is only bout 500ml. She still have wet diapers but i see the log book only total 4-5wets per day.
Hi bbanna, I think my girl should be taking 110ml average per feed. Not sure if today she drinks more.
2pm-50ml (think can be more but I never to up for her thinking it is only 2hr since last feed let her sleep)
All I feed except 12pm teacher feed.
My girl use bottle can drink up to 330-360ml these 2 days. Feeding time varies frm 10mins to 1 hr++, still not stable, but improved alot.
I latch on 2-3 times the rest of day.
