My daughter is 41 days old... She is on both bf and fm but from last one week she is spitting breastmilk and I was giving formula because my milk supply was less.... My Dr is saying that now she will not take ur milk and give her bottle.... What could be the reason for this...

Dr said this does not happen generally

Hi Jyoti. You should continue to give your milk. Maybe baby is full. Please do not stop or replace your milk. You can increase your supply by taking satavarex and by expressing milk. Do avoid bottle. Please refer to our articles for useful tips. Sharing one such article http://app.babychakra.com/article/160

If you have used the bottle the baby gets used to it. Another thing is the taste of formula is different as compared to breast milk. Completely stop use of bottle. While you work towards increasing your supply by frequent feeding and expressing offer the baby formula with a vati and spoon. Bottles can cause infection colic over feeding nipple confusion jaw development issues etc.
