Feeding style

0 to 1 years

I feed my 1. 5 month old baby boy on breast. Also I express milk in between and feed him using bottle. Mostly at night I use bottle feed.. Is this style OK? Also, he stays awake for 3-4 hours at night. How do I understand if he drank sufficient or not? I feed him if he keeps on crying. But at one point he vomits out.. When to stop?

hi Purva Nanivadekar ! this could cause nipple confusion in baby and he might get completely dependent on bottle feed. u could feed him for 20-25 minutes and then let baby take a burp. don't make him lie down immediately. hold him on ur shoulders, supporting his neck from back. after 15 to 30 minutes make him lie down . feed again after a gap of 2 to 2 and a half hours or on demand.. hope this helps!

Actually the problem is that due to some issues baby was admitted in hospital for first 25 days. He takes breast feed but he is already used to bottles. Also, I don't understand whether he drank sufficient or not while taking him on breast. I am so used to measure milk in quantity while feeding him. That's y problem arising. And now I am confused what to do

Purva Nanivadekar don't be confused, as if number of wet nappies and his weight gain are good, u need not worry.
