Seconds to Breathe: It is difficult to say precisely which infants develop hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (hie) and to what degree of severity. We do know, however, that effective breathing (ventilation and oxygenation) should be initiated within seconds of delivery and well-established by one minute of life.

Not because of early: weaning. Don't beat yourself up. Don't do anything with a bottle that you wouldn't do with your breast;i.e, don't let your baby schlep around , lie flat on his back or fall asleep with it.
