Breastfeeding

In need of bottle help.

I posted this on 2 other boards and they suggested I ask you all here. I am extremely sick and cannot nurse my baby. She has never taken a bottle before. I tried an Avent bottle sample and she refused it. What is the best bottle to use in the transition from breast to bottle? What about nipple size? Any help you ladies can give I would very much appreciate. TIA!!

Re: In need of bottle help.

  • I felt like the best breast to bottle was tommee tippee. However my baby was really gassy/burpy, and had colic so the Dr Browns worked best for us. We still at nearly 6 months use the originals low flow nipples. I try to breast feed as much as possible
  • We ended up using Avent, LO actually latched onto the Similac bottles really well too (I melted one trying to sterilize it which is why I didn't use them).  I do have to say that it took a while for LO to get the hang of feeding from the bottle.&nbsp

  • Sad thing is this might take several bottles to find what's right for your lo. For us we found that the "first years breast flow" is what works.

  • Some babies are very particular about the bottle type.  You might need to get a few different types and try them until you find one LO likes.  It could also be a milk temperature thing, try different temps for the milk.

  • Although my LO is not picky, I like tommee tippie also. I can see that he has to latch onto the bottle in the same way he latches to me. It actually takes him much longer to take a bottle too bad for DH ;
    Feel better!
