Hi I'm new to forum so apologies if something similar is posted just after some tips if anyone has experienced a similar situation.
Bub is 11 weeks old and since 4 weeks has been taking 2 expressed bottles a day one at lunch and one in the evening. She was fine switching between both feeding methods and took the bottle easily for anyone (Grandparents, Dad, Me etc)
For the last week she is not wanting the bottle. She plays with it using her tounge to push it out of her mouth and around her mouth. We try to persist but spend almost an hour to get her to only take 20-30 mls before I give in and breast feed as by that stage she is starving. When previously it was 120mls a session. She is a little better taking it for me I can sometimes get it up to 50 mls.
She seems to have no problem with the milk as she is taking it from the breast no problem at all. However I do not want to go back to full breast feeding as the bottle allows me a little freedom if she is needed to be looked after by someone. It also gives her dad quality time as he does teh night feed.
Has anyone experienced something similar. Any Advice?
