Sonali Shivlani

Expression of milk with a pump will not reduce the milk production. If you use a bottle the baby will start refusing the breast. Between the breast pump and the baby the baby is more effective hence it is better to have baby latch directly as much as possible and alternative feed should be given with vati and spoon.

Hey pushpa, is he taking Formula thru bottle? Few babies feel comfortable and get used to bottles than sucking from nipples from mother. As this is quite tougher than bottles. Sonali Shivlani can you please advice.


thanks Sangeetha and Sonali ..while starting FM I tried to feed him through spoon only he ll drink 5 or 6 ml and he ll refuse it...his weight also reduced ..so started to feed him in bottle and he drunk 60ml....
