So we EBF but have given bottles of breast milk here and there when I've wanted to go out or my husband has put her to bed. She never had issues until two weeks ago. I went to the doctor (I had the flu) and my husband watched her and gave her a bottle. I got home and he said she had choked and was having trouble. I tried giving it to her and she choked again. I ended up breast feeding her instead.
Since then she has refused a bottle (we didn't try again until a week later). For the past week we have been trying different ways of feeding her a bottle multiple times a day.
She is finally letting us put the nipple near her without screaming and tonight she acted like she was trying to latch but then would just chew on it. It made a huge mess with milk going every where. I heard her swallow a little bit but that's not really effective if I leave her with someone and she needs to eat.
Any ideas to encourage her to latch??
Tonight I noticed her sucking on her toys in the bath so I ran and pumped an ounce real quick but that's when she just chewed on it.
Bottles we have:
MAM size 1 and 2
Medela (maybe calma? Not sure)
Munchkin latch size 1 and 2
Tommee tipee size 2 I think
Similac - don't like these, the nipples are tiny
Gerber- same with this one
I have so many from my neighbor who EP and had a bunch of extra.
Previously she loved the MAM but also took the munchkin and Lanisoh well.
ETA: sorry for the novel just wanted to give enough info.
