My lo who is 9 weeks is terrible on the bottle! He is really snacky and even when I push him he never really seems that bothered! Any tips? X

Why is it a problem if he wants small amounts more frequently? I would just go with it tbh. I can't see how you could persuade or force him to take a larger amount less frequently if he doesn't want it.

There is no massive problem but it does mean that he doesn't sleep as long or settle as well!

You might need to adjust your expectations a bit. Tiny babies eat little and often and not sleeping long is perfectly normal.

I know it's hard but follow your baby's cues and you'll get through

Congratulations on your baby - sniff his head for me please smile

Ahh bless u I will! I think I listen too much to what ppl say they are 'supposed' to be eating etc!

Grrrrr at other people!

Honestly these early days will vanish in the blink of an eye and you'll have a sturdy toddler wrecking the joint before you know it.

Oh and people lie, or at least fudge a bit :

"Oh he sleeps through the night" often = "sleeps 11pm to 4 am if I'm lucky"
