My DS is now 4mths and just these past few days has been fussing at the breast after the initial letdown has finished (so assume once milk slows down). He doesn't do it every feed, usually only afternoons, but today it was also the morning.
History - we comp fed for over 2mths due to failing to thrive, low supply (now on meds) and a tongue-tie that has resulted in a lazy/poor sucker.
Whilst I had no choice, I know by having to give 4-5 top-up bottles each day that this could become an issue for us. He now knows how easy it is to drink from a bottle (EBM or formula) so I think is fussing when tired, knowing I'll get a bottle out for him.
I REALLY wanted to last at least 6mths b/f, so if anyone has any advice at all as to how I can stop this vicious cycle from continuing downhill I'd greatly appreciate it. I know the more bottles I give the worse it gets, but I can't afford to let him lose any more weight again
Thanks in advance.
