How to Introduce bottle to a baby 🍼🍼🍼

This post was something I wanted to write from long ...

Mannat is sleeping so have some time to pen down ...

This is one concern which almost every mom has to go through ...

I introduced bottle to kiwi as she is combined fed and in Srinagar I have no one to take care of her so I introduced bottle to her when she was 40 days ..

🍼Although I would still suggest everyone to breastfeed exclusively for 6 months ..and if baby is latching properly there is no need to Introduce bottle but enjoy the breastfeeding session

🍼There can be various reasons a mom wants to adapt the baby for bottle feeding

; ❤🍼Need to join work

❤🍼Baby is on combined feeding

❤🍼Baby has latching issues

❤🍼 For some reason mom can't feed the baby

❤🍼Personal choice

❤Whatever is the reason do not introduce the bottle before the baby completes a month...

❤let the baby establish a breasteeding routine for a month and then you may introduce bottle

😍Things to keep in mind before introducing bottles -

🍼Bottle should be bpa free

🍼always buy good quality branded bottles

🍼the teat; should be number 1 that means 0 -3 months nipple even if you introducing bottle to a 6 month for first time....; as baby needs to get use to the bottle feeding movements

🍼the nipple should have peristaltic flow

🍼sterilize the bottle before giving it to the baby..

🍼check the temperature of milk on your palm before giving it to the baby .. gradually you will get to know the comfortable temperature; for feeding..

😨😨😨Now there would be babies who would take bottle without any issues ..

But then we have the fussy babies who will reject the bottle

How to deal with them?

Here are few quick tips

🍼Always introduce the bottle in the evening ..; the logic is as the energy goes down for the baby ,the baby may not refuse the bottle that dominantly ..

🍼Always start with a small amount of 30 ML...let the baby establish the feed

🍼Baby may cry and ask for breast in this case let someone else feed the baby through bottle ..; Baby can smell momma from far off so better you be away when someone is trying to feed the baby ..

🍼you may also try taking the baby put in the evening ... try a baby carrier facing baby's face outwards and then slowly put the bottle in the mouth .. as the baby is enjoying the surrounding .. she may accept bottle easily

🍼 Bum patting - this works always for me with kiwi ...;; with one hand pat baby's bummies ...as baby will be distracted with the patting introduce the bottle

🍼you may also try distracting baby with white noise like mixer grinder noise or vacuum cleaner noise ..once the baby is distracted introduce the bottle..

🍼Try disco lights or fancylights .. once baby is distracted introduce the bottle

🍼🍼🤰🍼🍼

Always sterilize the bottle

Clean the rest with soft brush , even the bottle as well

If feeding the formula discard the milk after half an hour if not used

All the best mommas #momathon2 #wondermomma

Very helpful for moms

Nancy just shared this link with one mom, just in time

Thanx for sharing this nancy...very helpful for combination feeding mom's

Perfect timing. I introduced bottle to amaira afte a month only. N give her twice a day becz f personal choice. Bt still i had mny questions regarding this.
Thanks fr d post

Very helpful

All I think of these days is about bottle feeding the expressed BM. People just ask silly questions to me if I say I'm gonna introduce bottle feed... Are you going to work? No I'm not going to work but from May I will be in a different country, it's just gonna be 3 of us and I have to manage everything alone. I'm also not comfortable breastfeeding in public places, I know many will judge me but I'm just not comfortable and I feel breastfeeding is personal between me and my daughter.. I don't want the entire world to see.

Forget everything look at kiwi holding her bottle n saying “yummyy its all mine”. 😍😘

Rebecca Prakash i agree wd u completely. I inteoduced bottle fr d same reason. I m nt confortable bf in public places. N i dont wana stay at home alwazbecz f this reAson.

Rebecca Prakash I share the same thought ....;; many would raise brows but I can't feed in public places... I express and carry for travels and parties..
Secondly I introduced bottle for my own comfort ... i can't manage everything alone...
Let dadda feed and bond with baby was my concept ..
I give a damn what people think .... no one will come to handle my baby... it will be me so doesn't matter

Very helpful

Very useful information 👍

When do babies hold bottle on their own..?

My 10 months baby holds it and drinks sometimes😀

This is awesome Nancy!!

Very helpful one nancy singh; 😊😊

Shreya Singh my kid was holding bottle since 6th month. However it depends from baby to baby.

Very well written

I too have done combined feeding and my reason was the weight gain issue... BM wasn't helping at all.
I too was judged... But who cares.
Awesome post...Each nd every point is cleared.

Very helpful for new moms
