Clicking Noise When Bottle Feed
Tilt the bottle: Tilt the bottle up so that formula fills the nipple. You want to be sure that your baby swallows as little air as possible. You want the formula to come out at a good rate. You can check by turning the bottle upside down and shaking it. It's coming out at a good speed if there is a little spray and then a few drops. Burp your baby midway through the bottle. ...Read more

If we stop with bottle feed, cough decreases and again increase with bottle feeding. Why is this so?
Possible Aspiration: Cough that occurs only during feeding is concerning for aspiration. Aspiration occurs when food or saliva enters the airway. Cough occurs to clean the airway and keep foreign material out of the lungs. You should see your doctor to discuss this. You may need to change nipples, feeding position, or formula thickness. Potential aspiration needs to be evaluated because it can cause pneumonia. ...Read more
Can you tell me if on days I'm off she wants to bottle feed anyone know suggestion to help her get back to breastfeeding when I'm home?
Keep trying: You can only try. Some babies prefer the bottle since it's easier. Some prefer the breast. You can try offering the breast in the evening and in the morning, when she's most likely to want to snuggle. It also helps if you give the breast and someone else gives the bottle. Don't worry too much. If she gets some breast milk, she will still get the benefits. ...Read more

10 wk old bf only never had a bottle. I feel very uncomfortable feeding around moms who bottle feed as they make me feel inferior. Is breast best?
Yes: Study after study suggests benefits from breast feeding outweigh any from bottle feed. Of course, not every mom is able to breast feed, so we don't want to make anyone feel guilty, since basic calories are important for baby. But given a choice, we'd always recommend breast feeding for as long as possible. Check out http://goo. Gl/jkwdzm (webmd) & http://goo. Gl/q39ee (mayo clinic). ...Read more
Baby refusing to bf or bottle feed since she started baby rice last week. Stopped baby rice still she bf from 1 breast for 10min then start crying?
Be patient with her: Baby actually gets almost 90% of feeding from breast within first 5 minutes of nursing, thus, I expect she is getting most of the feeding off of that breast. You are right to stop the cereal - her milk is the mainstay of her nutrition, and she needs to nurse or take the formula. You could also try sips from a cup if she refuses the bottle -maybe she's just growing up too fast! ...Read more
What to do if I have a 4 day old infant, that I am breast and bottle feed. How can I completely empty the milk in my breast?
Breastfeeding: If you have enough milk to exclusively breast feed no bottle feeding is needed. In 15 minutes of sucking the baby will empty the breast. If he/she is satisfied with only nursing on one side you can pump the other side and freeze it for future use. Pumping does not completely empty the breast like the suction from a baby but a good pump will do ok. ...Read more
