My LO is almost 8 weeks and we've been giving him one bottle of expressed breast milk a day for two weeks, usually the last feed before bed, and it is taking forever! Last night it took an hour and a half to eat 4.5 ounces, when it only takes him about 30 minutes straight from the source. I pump during this feed and I usually get at least 7 ounces in 20 minutes, so I don't know why he is eating so slowly or so little.
We are using Como tomo bottles with the slow flow nipples. We tried moving up to the medium flow, but it was too fast for him. I would nurse him exclusively, but I am returning to work in 4 weeks and need him to be able to take a bottle.
Any ideas of what we could try would be much appreciated!
