problems with bottle feed

Hi mummies My daughter turned 2 mths on 11 apr 2020. All along before she turned 2,she was perfectly fine inserting bottle in her mouth and finished her feedings. At times we notice she wants more milk whenever we pull out the bottle from her mouth. 2 days before 2 mths and till now when we feed her she dont want the bottle n at times her milk will not finish. We feed her on her feeding time. She show all the signs of hungry but when we feed she dont want the bottle. She will show signs like puke n cry. Im on mixed feeding formula n bm. I pump to give her in bottle as latching im afraid she will not have enough.Any advise from mummies..

Hi my friend! My baby had the same issue at 9weeks! I was an exclusively pumping mum, so I couldn’t offer her my boob. So you can try to change to a bigger teat, cos babies may get frustrated when the flow is too slow. Or you can try different position to feed her (my baby drank only when I stood on one leg to bounce her). When all these failed, I fed her only when she was slping :( It may just be a phase, but it’s an extremely worrying one for any mummy! Hope this phase shall pass quickly for your baby ❤️

Have you tried upsizing the teat? The flow could be too slow for her now. Fyi, my LO went on a bottle strike at 1 month + too.. for 3 months 😭 Had to bottle train her again.

If your LO is sick, this could also affect her feeding, because when she sucks from the bottle, she needs to breathe through her nose. But if her nose is blocked from mucus, then it’s really hard for her. So try clearing her nose first before feeding?

if she still fusses but doesn’t want milk try offering pacifier maybe she just wants to suckle
