Question: Hi... Im a new mom n baby is 7weeks old now... Initially my baby was bottle fed with formula and pumped breast milk due to flat nipple... Now that problem was resolved and now my baby was not latching to breast and he prefers bottle feed... So i have to pump milk n give him in bottle... What to do to switch him back to breast... Pl suggest
Answer: Even I have faced the same problem exactly as yours. Bottle feeds should be avoided as my baby suffered bcz of this she had ear infection n became colic. Ear infections are caused due to the usage of bottle where the milk flows from mouth to ear n nose n also they swallow lot of air while bottle fed and they become colic. I suggest u to use a nipple shield so that the rubber quality makes the baby feel like bottle, use for a month then automatically baby will latch. It is also a solution for flat nipple.
Question: my baby has suddenly stopped drinking my breastmilk and want only bottle .he cries if i offer him breast milk .what should I do pls help ?
Answer: Dear as you have given the option of bottle it is quite normal that babies leave breastfeed after that. Only way is to offer only breastmilk no matter what to ur baby if he is hungry. He may refuse couple of times but will eventually take it. You have to be strong and ignore the cries for sometime. Hope it helps.
