When I bottle fed my son ive started to noticed that he leaks milk out the sides of his mouth and ive tried different bottles with different nipples cuz he was a preemie so I'm using that size but no matter what I do I cant get him to latch on good enough. What should I do?
My son had just started to take bottles but now started teething. All of a sudden he won’t drink his bottle and will only nurse. What do I do, I’m losing my patience and am really worried he’s not getting enough nutrition. What can I do so he will drink his bottle again or drink his milk
I recently had to start supplementing with formula. My son is 5 months old and i just dont produce enough for him. Since we started formula about a month ago he has gained 2 pounds already! He went from the 12 percentile to 60 just like that! So why do people still snub their nose at me when i whip up a formula bottle? I thought they new thing was “Fed is best”. Mommas if you use formula YOU RO... More
So my son is 15 months old now and is SUPER dependent on his bottle. In the last 3 months he has gone from like 20oz of bottle to about 30 or 35. He likes sippy cups, but he just loves his bottle! Even if there is only water in it. He will drink it until he is sucking air for a good minute. I try to wean him off of it, but he gets super cranky!
We have a 14 month old that we are supposed to stop the night time bottles. However when we try she screams and screams and since my boyfriend work early we give in and give it to her. Anyone else experience this or have suggestions on what I can do to transition off the night time bottle?

Thanks..
My little one is 5 mo old and I will be getting a nanny part time when I go back to work. Does anyone have any experience with introducing the bottle? Also, what routine did you maintain? Would you give him the bottle during the same time of day that the nanny would be or did you nurse? Also he has acid reflux so any tips on pacing the feed would be good too!
He doesn't want to eat any food, just junk. 😔
My son is 3 months old and was born a month premature. I’ve been trying to keep up with his appetite, but it seems to keep increasing! He’s already up to 36oz/day. He sleeps for about 6 hours at night and takes multiple naps everyday. Is this normal for a preemie?
When I first had my son I knew for sure that I wanted to breast feed not only because of the health benefits but because it would save me a lot of money on formula. Me being the only female in my family to actually stick to it when my family was trying to force me to give my son a bottle from time to time I refused & now I’m regretting it. I can’t go anywhere without him because even if I p... More
My LO drinks Gerber Gentle Start 1 formula. She’s been drinking it since birth. She’s 13 weeks now. The last two weeks she’s been spitting up a lot, almost half of what i gave her. I called the doctor twice. The first time she said feed her half of her formula, burp her and then give her the rest. So I did that but she was still spitting up. The second time I called she said reduce the amount I... More
Not sure if we should try Similac for Spit Up or the Enfamil A.R. for Spit up !
I have a 6 month old son who still uses the #2 MAM nipples. He’s starting to get annoyed with feeding (starts eating but then stops halfway and refuses to continue) so I’m guessing it’s cause he thinks the nipples are too slow. I tried using the #3 nipples and things were going well again for a few days but then everything turned to sh!t cause he started choking on the #3 and also SUPER spittin... More
I have a 7 week old and just thought I would throw out some of my questions. 1. When did your LO start sleeping longer than 3-4 hour stretches at night? What did you do to help them sleep longer? 2. When did your LO start consistently eating more than 3 oz per feeding? 3. When did you switch to a bigger bottle nipple? This is especially for those that use Avent bottles. My LO is still using...

I’ve been soaking my bottles, after each use, in a tub of water and the Medela Quick Clean Breast Milk Removal Soap, and then rinsing and sterilizing afterwards. I’ve been doing this method cause that’s how they taught us at the hospital. My question is, is there any reason why I can’t just soak them in regular dish soap?? Should be fine, right? Thanks!
How did you get them? I signed up with Enfamil’s program awhile back and still haven’t received anything :( And is it “bad” to keep switching the different formulas with the baby? As in, feed him Gentlease and then once I finish that container, feed him Neuropro? And then switch him to Premium?
