Question: My baby find feeding bottle difficult how to teach her???
Answer: Try these tips for a smooth transition:
Offer him a bottle in the evening after his regular feeding to get him used to the nipple. Start with a small amount of breast milk – about half an ounce.
Try a slow-flow nipple.
Let someone else feed him the first bottle.
Try to be out of the house.
Hope this helps.
Question: My baby is 3months old.. How to use feeding bottle for her?? She cannot suck that nipple of the bottle..any suggestions Pls...
Answer: Dear the best thing to do is continue with your regular feeding routine, including offering your baby a bottle at the normal times. She may resist, but don't become frustrated (she'll sense your tension) or give in by nursing her. Sometimes breastfed babies refuse to take a bottle from Mom because they know she has something better. If this seems to be the case, ask your husband or a grandparent to take over bottle feedings until the phase passes (you may have to leave the room, or even the house, for a while during these times). Have your husband or relative offer her the bottle by first letting a few drops of milk fall onto her lips and into her mouth so she recognizes the breast milk. Then stroke her lips with the nipple until she opens her mouth wide, as if to nurse. If she clamps her mouth shut, don't try to force the nipple in between her pursed lips -- this is a battle you are guaranteed to lose.after trying everything, your baby still staunchly refuses to take a bottle from anyone, then don't try to force her. Take the bottle away and offer it again every half-hour until she eats. Babies can be stubborn and she may hold out for an hour or more, but once she gets hungry, she'll take her bottle. If this is hard to do, remind yourself that a healthy baby will not starve herself
Question: I have 3days old girl baby.. my nipple is big so she can't able to suck.. what to do? I am worried. pls help me
Answer: Hello dear. It takes time but gradually babies get into the habit. It is big that is good for the baby. Please continue feeding the baby once she is into the habit she will start sucking on her own. Hope it helps.
