    I find my DD prefers to be lying flat, so I sit down on the floor with her & just hold the bottle in her mouth, rather than have her on any angle holding her... We did most BF's lying down so I think she's used to that.

    He took 180mls of formula from me, yay! Had some trouble getting him down for a sleep without a breastfeed but hopefully it will get easier as he gets used to it.

    Will probably just do this slowly, still planning to breastfeed first thing in the morning & last thing at night & ill just gradually replace the feeds during the day with formula. That way its the same as daycare.
