WWYD?

I posted earlier about not being able to nurse M for a while due to illness and medications. I bought the Tommee Tippee bottles. She will take them but she is refusing formula. She latches onto the bottle and sucks but as soon as she tastes the formula she spits it out. I cannot take my meds until I can get her to eat since they are excreted into BM. I am in serious agony. I need my pills but I need my daughter to eat. What do I do? WWYD if you were in my shoes? Thank you so much to all that helped with the bottles.

    Do you gave any BM that you can mix in to the formula? I'm so sorry that you have to deal with this. I hope something works soon for both of you!

  • unfortunately, you'll have to pump and mix in some breast milk until she gets used to the taste.  You might want to try to have someone else feed her at first, because she might still only want to nurse with you. Good luck.

  • How is she with solids? Could you mix formula in with things she likes so she is at least getting some?
