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: My son is not having milk properly morning time.. If we feed Brest milk through spoon he drinks... Is it fine to feed him with spoon?
Answer: I can understand your anxiety. Once or twice feeding with spoon should not cause trouble. But if baby gets used to it and don't suck your milk will reduce. So try to use nipple shield as it becomes easy for baby to suck and helps to increase flow. Always remember if baby stops sucking milk production will decrease. Take care

Answer: Dear if your baby is crying continuously even after the feed please check for constipation. If the tummy of your baby is tight it could be the cause. Try giving grip water and see if that helps. Try these steps to prevent and ease the pain of constipation:- 1.) Burp Often. Burping helps relieve gas by allowing air to escape from the body, keeping it from building up. 2.) Keep Baby Upright while breastfeeding 3.) Pump Baby's Legs 4.) Draw a Warm Bath 5.) Try a Baby Massage 6.) Track ur Diet. 7.) Check feeding position. "When you're nursing or bottle-feeding, try to keep the baby's head higher than her stomach. Hope this helps.

Question: My kid does not breast feed. He keeps on crying while trying. Only takes milk from bottle. Please help
Answer: Hi dear, this is the common issue we face with infant I can suggest you tips, hope it will help. Keeping feed times positive is important to help your baby keep a positive association with them. This can be hard to do as breast refusal can be very stressful. It’s easy to get quite upset and angry when trying to feed a baby who is refusing. Spending lots of time in skin-to-skin contact with your baby on your bare chest can help to remind your baby that this is a nurturing place to be. This could be on a bed or in a bath etc. Skin-to-skin contact can help your baby to use his instincts to find your breasts on his own. In this way, skin-to-skin contact can take the pressure off both of you. It’s like you’re saying to your baby ‘Well, there is your food, go get it if you want it.’ Similarly, placing your baby in a sling and leaving your bra undone so that his face is near your breast could help
