I have a pair of 3 month old twin girls born pretty much at term. One of them has started fighting her bottle bigtime, this started 3 weeks. At first I thought it was just a phase but it seems to be escalating. She starts squirming just when we lay a hankie or bib under her chin and then starts kicking/crying/growing red in the face/arching her back as soon as we approach her mouth with the teat. She could go through with 5 to 10 minutes of this before she starts to suck, once she starts though, she usually takes most of her feed. Burps fine and is growing well. She doesn't vomit. The rest of the time she's pretty happy.
I've tried using different teats and formulas without much difference. She does this even though she is clearly hungry. The only time she puts up less resistance is when she's sleepy ie in the middle of the night. I'm beginning to dread feeding her. They get fed at 4-hourly intervals.
Brought her to the GP and we couldn't find anything wrong. She's growing well and her mouth is fine. Going to see the paediatrician on Monday.
Anyone got any ideas?
