Q:

Hello Mommies...
My baby is preferring bottle over breast... When he is sleepy he takes breast but otherwise turns away and cries if i try yo put him yo breast.... I am currently expressing milk and feeding him which he takes happily but doesn't latch on breast...
Pls help me...



Since when he is doin like this?? I see ur baby is 3 months old.u must b having good supply of breastmilk.chk if has cold.try different feeding position.

This is because of nipple confusion. Baby finds sucking through the bottle easier as compared to the breast. I would suggest you to stop bottle before baby starts rejecting breasts in sleep too.

Hi simple bottles are easy suck and breast are difficult so babies will prefere bottles, its not at all recommended and your supply will completely stop which is not good, Slowly cut down 1 bottle feeding and breastfeed .
