Hi mummies, anyone can advise me, my baby girl is coming 8 week old.. I'm trying to intro her bottlefeed. Now I'm using avent brand with the no.1 teat.. when my mom feed her with the bottle my girl drink till 20-30ml fall asleep. . The most She drink 50ml then dont't want .. She wake her up drink awhile sleep... sometimes struggle dont't want to drink.. we keep shake the bottles for her to drink .. she sometimes cry refuse to drink.. is time for her feed. . I giving her 3 hourly. can anyone advise should I change the bottle or teat or any recommendation on bottle which is suitable for bf baby..
Switch out the teat to no. 2 for faster milk flow
At that age, I feed my boy on demand.. Sometimes not even 3 hourly. And if she refuses to drink probably bcoz she's full. Babies tummies are small. I only change to teat no 2 closer to 3 mths coz I dont't want my boy to get choked.
My mom is helping me bottle feed her with EBM. I'm currently still fully latch on. I never mix bottle feed with latch on. My mik let down is quite fast..Originally Posted by KiBin:787002

I'm worry she dont't want to be bottle feed. . As I need to go back to work..Originally Posted by diza:787012
I bottle feed my boy once a day during maternity leave. At most 2. So far I have no problems.. You may want to try other brands coz my boy rejected pigeon but accepted avent. Actually if your babe is drinking around 30ml or more it means she's accepting the bottle unless you had to struggle right from the beginning of the feed.. NB sleeping while bottle feed is normal.
yeah!! switch out the teat to no. 2 or more for faster milk flow
she will drink as long as fit on her...
