Wondering why your breastfed baby is refusing to drink from a bottle?
Here are 3 reasons why that may be happening:
1. Your baby wants to be close you 2. Your baby dislikes or is not used to the teat of the bottle 3. Your baby isn't hungry enough.
So what can you do?
1. Get them in a quiet room with no distractions 2. Get yourself and your baby in a comfortable position 3. Try someone else feed your baby 4. Offer the feed when they are hungry
What not to do:
1. Don't leave your baby alone when feeding 2. Ensure the temperature of the milk is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit or 37 degrees Celsius 3. Don't be pressured or rush in, take your time and be calm.
