I have 2 boys, Jacob 20 mths, who I breastfed until 6 mths and i do't remember having too much of a problem changing to bottles. Oliver 4 mths, is breastfed and is still feeding every 2 hrs 24/7 and i just don't think i can do it any more . I'm absolutly exhausted, i've tried putting him on the bottle, different teats and formulas, even my breast milk, but he won't have any of it and throws an absolute paddy. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him to take the bottle?
I got DD to take a bottle by offering one when she was asleep - she took it without realising and got used to it that way - then when I introduced one in the daytime she was OK with it.
A bit like those CDs where you learn French in your sleep... ??
Just, er, be sure you REALLY want to... replacing feeds with bottles can really mess things up unless you're careful. It did for me... don't want to scaremonger, but just do your homework and think hard about it first, ok?
Sure Tiktok will be along shortly with some wise advice...
