anybody breastfeeding as well given formula with bottle?  does baby starts rejecting breast... if given formula in bottle? i was feeding with vati.. bonla... till now


Hi Shreya. I did both for my child. There was a time when baby preferred formula because it was sweeter :)
I was stubborn and slowly reduced formula and increased my own milk. I fed for 2 years!
Any input Ankita Popli, Harneet Khurana, Harpreet Sidhu, Sonam Bansal

yes.. if you feed your baby with bottle.. there will b nipple confusion.. baby will refuse breasts.. it's better to continue with spoon..

Shreya Singh

my maid was feeding with vati spoon.. she had to leave for some reason...i need to take the bottle route now....
but i want my baby to continue bm as well.. plz help

Sonam patel

just see if baby takes milk properly.. if she refuses then the only way is expressing and giving your milk in bottle itself..

try Madela calma nipple to avoid this issue... that functions like mother's breast so baby take milk from both nipples easily Shreya

yes i m giving bm as well as fm through bottle. i dint face any issue that baby starts refusing bm after bottle being introduce. mostly people says that dont use bottle. baby vl refuse ur milk. but thankfully i dint face this issue. you can try slowly slowly by bottle feed and see how baby takes it. What i do is first i gave her bm thn after sometime fm using bottle. she doesnt takes bottle without taking my feed😝

Hii shreya even I have given both BM n FM n baby is OK with both but in earlier try to give more BM bcoz gud baby health.. my 3yr old even takes BM till now specially at sleeps so try to make the balance.

Shreya Singh

what brand bottles suggested so that he can continue with bm.

Manvi Bhandari

philips avent is good. its nipple is kind of our nipple only. nd its also anti colic

Ankita Popli

hey shreya, I did both. but my children were more on fm. from day one I am feeding them with the bottle.
it's just a myth that babies reject bm after feeding from bottle, actually in both the cases (bm or bottle feed) child has to suck, and suction is the important part of both feeding style. plz don't worry , feed ur baby in whichever way ur baby want, all these things r meant for ur baby.
there a many good brands available in the market like avent, bonny, Chico, etc .buy from the market or online all r safe and gud.
all the best
