After an exhausting 3 week growth spurt with DC2 involving 5 hour marathon BF sessions I decided to build up a supply of expressed milk to top up at future growth spurts. She took EBM from an Avent #1 teat happily at 4 weeks but now at 6 weeks has struggled to latch on to the bottle. Can anyone reccomend a good teat for a BF 6 week old. I really need to give her the expressed milk as I cannot keep up with her and need some energy left over to look after her boisterous toddler brother

have you tried tommee tippee back to nature or whatever they're called?

second that - tommee tippee closer to nature (? I think) worked for us when breastfed dd started to get cross with ebm in her medela bottles. Although they do seem to produce more mess!

Another vote for tommee tippee ones, DD never had any problems and managed to go back and forth from breast to bottle easily. (Actually quite surprised how well they worked as only bought them as they were cheap)

second what champagne said...i am currently trying to get my 8 week old back to breastfeeding after a nursing strike at 4 weeks old...she will happily go back and forth...tommee tippee closer to nature are by far brilliant for bf and ebf!
