Let down breastfeeding is it good for the baby to be fed only with the bottle?

Any tips on getting exclusively breast fed baby to drink out of a bottle or a sippy cup , my baby is almost 10 months old and I have returned to work this week and he is refusing to drink from any thing at daycare , I am stressed out and atp willing to fully wean him off any suggestions on cups that have worked for your breast fed baby and also suggestions on weaning off nursing completely?

Comotomo and Philips aren’t have worked the best and you have to go cold turkey. He’ll protest and demand but offer the bottle and if you know he isn’t hungry offer a snack to take his mind off of it. My son was easy to transition because I completely dried up in 24 hours. My daughter she was a little harder because she wasn’t use to a paci and that is what I use for her too. Something she can suck on is usually all they want. So far my daughter hasn’t been on the boob in about two weeks. I’m dried up. She had started daycare and wasn’t drinking either.

Does your daughter take a pacifier now that she isn’t on the boob any more ?

Got my son to latch but my milk let down isn’t as fast as the bottle. It’s been difficult.

The more you breastfeed the better the letdown will get. My lactation consultant told me that slow letdown is better for newborns since they should learn to put a little effort in getting their milk. Keeps them awake. Also make sure you're feeding him on both sides.

Unfortunately, I have an inverted on one side. It’s been hard. Also, he was in NICU so he’s been on the bottle for 3 weeks. He falls asleep as soon as he gets on the breast. I feel defeated,

I don't even get that, but the Nicu where my son is makes me feel like it's a huge deal. They say pump every 3 hours no matter what you get. Don't give up!

I have to deliver by c section Pregnant with my 4th. I have bottle fed all my babies this time I want to breastfeed. My issue is that I didn't get to see my youngest for 8 hours after birth. Is there a breast pump I can use to get my milk coming in without having to use a bottle to feed. I know the first milk that comes in has a name and is healthier so I don't want to waste it. I also don't want to chance baby wanting bottle instead so breast. Any advice is appreciated..

Hey aunties!! The NUK bottle is thee best bottle as far as control for newborn babies. Especially if your baby is breast and bottle fed. The nipple is shaped like a real breast which makes feeding sessions a breeze and I never have to worry about if my baby will forget how to latch on if she's fed too many bottles in a day!! I mixed my breast milk with a Lil rice so sis finna be knocked out after this!🙌🫡😍

First night home went good but equally bad... She cried all night only got maybe 2 full hours of sleep she refuses to be sat down, Hates to be bottle feed only likes for mommy to breast feed her, And only likes when I change her diapers, that makes Connor sad because he was so ready to help with her and she completely refuses to even be touched by him😕 And Ami refuses to come home! So having a newborn & teen is not going well....💔😭 But thank god she's finally napping lol 😂

My nephew is allergic to milk so he couldn’t breast feed at all without breaking out in hives. I think moms know what they’re babies need 🥰.

Can babies be used to a certain bottle only ? I tried feeding my baby w the Philips bottle she uses doc brown but I did have a clean one and she was hungry but got really fussy and didn’t take it. I quickly washed one of the other bottles and she took it and calmed down.

yes this is totally a thing. but what ive found is its not the bottle its the nipple put the old nipple on a few times then switch it all together and baby will adjust.

or it can be the flow thats the issue if its faster flow that means bottle nipple has bigger hole so it may be she not used to such a fast flow

So my baby is breastfed most of the time and he is only on the bottle when I’m gone or at work but he doesn’t really take the bottle when it’s time for him to eat and I don’t know what to do because he refuses to eat out of a bottle.

Girl my 10 yr old son wouldn't either. We later found he has a mild form of aspergers. ( he's also a genius). But he would not take any nipple except mine. At 4 months we literally used a syringe and a little cup with no lid. He would sip from the cup or we would use the syringe, small amounts at a time. I know it seems like a difficult thought but alittle is better then none. I did find one bottle and nipple to work. Even Flo manual pump at Walmart comes with a bottle and nipple. It's the only one he would take. Turns out he has a major texture issue. He still won't touch certain things ,constantly washes his hands and he has an eating disorder called (a.r.f.i.d.) aggressive restrictive food intake disorder. He's very restricted as to things he will and can eat today at 10. Best of luck to you. My advice is try the even flo pump bottle it's like 20 something dollars at Walmart and bonus is u get a pump too.

Is it possible to bottle feed your baby but with your breast milk. So I would pump and use a bottle instead of putting the baby to the boob. Mainly because I’ve heard it’s hard to switch from boob to bottle and my baby will go to daycare once it’s time for me to return to work but I want to use my breast milk. I’m a first time mom, so this may be a dumb question.
