Hello there! This is my first time on here and kind of at our wits end with regards to the way our LO feeds. She is happy to take first bottle of day 6oz then she has 3oz of next three day feeds and becomes agitated thereafter - screaming, tunrning away so I wind her and once thats done she again becomes very distressed. I stop trying to offer the bottle at that point then she wants fed around half hour later. Its almost as if she is sick of taking bottle! Any ideas I am certainly ot wanting to force feed her but the last feed of day can become a nightmare as she is so distressed. we notice as well that she is unable to feed with any noise/ talking etc around her. thanks

mummster, what size teat are you using? Ime when they start fussing its time to move up a teat size.

That's interesting - I found the opposite with my 2 month old and she is now back on newborn.

Have you asked your health visitor for advice?
