My daughter is barely taking a bottle since she started crawling. I think she just wants to be on the move vs sitting and drinking. Any tips on how to get her to drink already?
Every once in a while, my daughter will be completely not interested in nursing but when I give her a bottle with breast milk in it, she kills it. I hand express and have milk coming out but she just isn’t interested. I do pump (but don’t enjoy it) and I know she needs to be sucking from me most of the time to keep my supply (I’ve had supply issues). Any advice?
We are traveling out of the country in March and bringing along our 15 month old with us. She still drinks from the bottle. Anyone here have experience on using disposable bottle liners suited for her? Any other tips as to what to bring or what not to bring on a 13hr flight? How do I keep her entertained? TIA for all the tips.
Hello parents! I’m a stay at home mom, living with the in-laws for now and still exclusively breastfeeding. I have a trip coming up in a few months without the little one and she will absolutely NOT take a bottle. 😣 We’ve tried different nipples, different brands, warm milk, cold milk, fresh milk, etc. any suggestions?!? Help!
Hey all, so I guess I’m looking for advice and I guess encouragement. I have a seven month old that has been EBF. I’m considering starting to supplement but am having a ton of guilt about it. She doesn’t sleep more than a few hours and I’ve been having supply issues here and there. What has been your experience with supplementing? How do you ease it in?
Has anyone switched there baby to all formula and noticed a difference in their eating pattern? My 4.5mo old is on a schedule and eats every 3 hours from 7am-7pm but hasn’t been eating as much as he used to (about 5.5oz) for each feeding. Did you notice your baby not eating as often or as much per feeding when you switched to all formula? Thanks!
Help mamas & papas: 8-week old refusing to take the bottle! Any brands or techniques that worked for you/ your babies? My EBF baby took bottle successfully twice at 8 days. Didn’t give him bottle again until last week, when I desperately needed to rest during an all-nighter. He chews teet but doesn’t suckle. He has a shallow latch whilst nursing, due to tongue tie that was corrected but has left bad habits behind. Your experience and advice much appreciated! Thanks
Hey Mamas and Papas! I’ve got a 21 month old girl and she’s still drinking an 8 oz of warm milk in a bottle before bed and while I try to discourage it, another 6 oz in the mornings (about 50% of the time).. any tips on how to wean her off these last bottles? My pediatrician didn’t seem to be worried about it, but I feel like she uses her bottles as a crutch for not eating much. And even then there are nights that she’ll wake up hungry because she ate just a few bites of dinner and the milk burned off already. 🙄😂 And she loves her milk so I know getting rid of that night time bottle is goin...

I pump and bottle feed. My baby has been getting about an ounce in and his belly starts making noises. He starts crying and squirming. I try every thing I can to help him burp or pass gas. Nothing. He tries to take the bottle as if he is hungry but then keeps crying after bottle is in his mouth. This cycle has been going on for almost a week now. Feedings are taking SO long and stress us both out. Doc can't see us for almost a week 😒 any advice?
I have a 2 part question: (7mo old baby) 1. FOOD: We introduced solids at 6mo, so far we only feed her solids 1x a day and the rest is breast milk. Should I increase that to every meal? 2. SLEEP/FORMULA: My daughter is going through sleep regression, she wakes at least 2-3x a night to nurse. I'm drained in the morning and then am unable to keep up with rebuilding our milk supply for when I am at work. I've been hesitant about introducing formula (not sure why I am) but I also need to sleep. Should I add formula for night time feedings so my husband can help out?
Has anyone else gone through this? I have a 6wk old son he was born at 36wks and he has GERD the doctor gave him reflux medicine but it doesn’t really seem to help a lot . He gags sometimes really bad where he can’t catch his breath it’s very scary to me. I’ve tried everything from smaller more frequent meals to letting him sit up for awhile after eating the doctor suggested adding rice to make his milk thicker, changed his milk twice he’s on Alimentum now. I mean I’ve tried everything. He has really bad gas it makes him yell and cry I just don’t know what to do. I’m taking him to a GI spe... More
