baby not taking bottle feed
Created by Updated on Jan 19, 2017
My lo is 4month old and has been on exclusive breast feed till now. I wanted to transition her on bottle feed for at least one or two feeds in a day as I would soon be joining my work. But she rejects the bottle. I tried several formula milk brands and different fresh milk brands with different water combination but she just refuses. I tried with spoon as well but no luck. I also tried to give breast milk in bottle but again in vain. if I forcibly give her top milk through spoon, she would cry and later puke. what should i do to make her take top milk any suggestions?

this problem comes when baby prefers one nipple over other.. breast over bottle n vice versa as well.. can't do much here except trying. use nipple with single hole that has less flow matching bf flow. try every day even baby rejecting bottle. give ur breast and in between swiftly give bottle nipple in mouth.
