Hi friends. Please help me. My baby is 4month old. I want to start extra feeding I am trying my best but he is not liking it. I am a working lady from January I need to join my job. I am very worried.

Hey. first check with your pediatrician what is best to start and what ML. then yes it will me a little difficult for the baby to like anything else other than mom's milk as it tastes best and he /she might be taking directly from you so bottles or other means they will not be comfortable. After you check with your pediatrician them every alternate feed please give yours with bottle so that your baby will slowly start accepting it.

Most babies will resist top feed with another method in the beginning. Try having someone else feed especially when you are not present. When the mother is not visible then the baby is more open to trying. You can still expect some resistance but eventually the baby will adapt. It is also a good idea to try feeding with a vati and spoon breast milk first as the taste atleast is the same.

Thanks. Let me try. Hope it will work.
