Q:

My baby is 50 days old... I was hospitalised for 3 days due to dehydration and she was on both bf and fm feed before that.... But now after I got discharge she is not taking bf and deattach herself while breastfeeding and want bottle only..... Vl she not take my milk now.?



Priya Sood

Jyoti do not worry. This is because baby finds it easier to feed from bottle. That is why most doctors recommend feeding by spoon. Keep giving your baby your milk but if she still refuses first give yours and then feed from spoon. You can express too. Slowly she ll come completely on your feed.

Sonali Shivlani

Bottles once started are generally preferred by the baby. As they are easy and free flow. Please discontinue bottle completely. If you have to give expressed milk or formula please give with vati and spoon. Slowly she will forget the bottle association and come back to the breast. Remember not to give up and expect some tantrums.
