Common problem: Very often babies do that! It is much easier to get milk from bottle than having to work (suck) to get milk. We recommend feeding from breast first for about 15 minutes from each side; then offer bottle. If the baby is still hungry he or she will take more milk from bottle. It is a good idea to feed from breast for a few days.
