Baby nurses for 2-3 min then starts crying and refuses to latch on again. Good milk supply. Dr evaluated baby and said healthy.

If that's the case, baby doesn't want to latch on because he's full. If not growing, let down may be slow; pump a few minutes to get flow going, then put baby on. Have lactation spec. Or pediatrician watch you nurse-getting areola in? ...Read more

My 2 year old keeps on waking up in the middle of the night crying for a bottle i know she's not hungry she eats very good on day how can I stop this?

Take her to a : pediatric dentist to check for cavities & to her pediatrician to learn why it's time to ditch all her bottles. Use open-mouth cups that she can't carry around & sip from. At consistent nap-& bedtimes, brush her teeth, read, put her in her own bed in her own room drowsy, but awake, to learn to self-calm for sleep. Consistently ignore her night-crying. It will get worse for a few nights, then stop. ...Read more
