My baby is now 9 weeks old and I am trying to introduce breast and bottle as I do need to leave her occasionally. Tried lots of teats until eventually found one she will have in her mouth (Tommy Tippee NUBY slow flow) now it seems to be the formula - can anyone suggest a formula milk? I have tried Aptamil (Blue) and Milumil (Yellow), Cow & Gate (Green) she seems to take 1oz the realise she doesn't like it an spits out bottle and all milk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone solved this problem? I know breast ,ilk from bottle should be best but cannot express - find it too difficult.
I went through exactly the same thing when I first introduced formula to my baby girl. She absolutely screamed her head off and refused to take the bottle. If it was expressed milk, she'd be fine so I guess that it was just the different taste of the formula that she didn't like. I then started introducing a tiny bit of formula after a breasfeed, which got her used to the taste and eventually I was able to feed her a full bottle.
Yes but how often have you tried, it is very common not to succeed the first couple of times but then you can get loads. Some people get on better with hadn expressing or hand pump or electric pump. What did you try?
