HIGH-END INFANT FORMULA
Baby resists the bottle, what should I do?
Many mothers have tried to use the bottle to force the infant milk powder to the baby; the bottle mouth is coated with some breast milk; after hungry, the bottle is fed again; the person other than the mother is fed the bottle, so that the baby can not touch the taste of the mother; Not sleeping, just use the bottle to feed when you wake up; breastfeeding half, then put the bottle in her mouth... The feedback is basically still not eaten, still do not like the bottle. Because the baby is born with a sense of dependence on the mother's teat and breast milk, and when the child is crying badly, many parents will be soft again and exchange breastfeeding, so there is no way for the child to eat the bottle.
How do you let your baby accept the bottle?
It takes time for the baby to accept the bottle, just as it takes time for an adult to change a way of eating. In view of this, parents can divide their baby's eating time into early, middle and late, and because the baby is more likely to accept new things during the day, you can choose to try your baby at noon. You can first tease him with a bottle, then feed the baby a few mouthfuls, let the baby know the bottle, and then feed him with the bottle when the baby is in a stable mood.
Then, pay attention to the feeding posture during feeding, and change the pacifier whose texture is closer to that of breast milk. In addition, frequent replacement of the brand of milk powder may also cause the baby to be tired of milk.
When switching to a bottle, many babies cry and even refuse to eat, kick and play. At this time, parents need their patience and determination. As parents, they should not be too soft. When the parents gradually shorten the time of breastfeeding, the baby feels hungry and you will not compromise to breastfeed him. He will Slowly accept the bottle.
Alternatively, you can try to do this:
Mothers can try to stay out for a day to let the baby adjust to the bottle and accompany him to change this way. Although this requires a process, in general, a full day is enough, and the average child will not last that long. First of all, the mother needs to squeeze out the milk and feed it to the baby. Because the baby is used to the taste, and only bottle feeding during this period, let the baby get used to changing the feeding tool without resisting.
Mothers need to pay attention when feeding, don't give the baby anything to eat or drink, and when the child feels hungry and has appetite, use the bottle to feed the baby. It is important to note that it is best to give your baby a soft, nipple-like nipple that is closest to breast milk. Also, use a regular, elongated bottle that matches any type of nipple. Use a sterilized needle to poke a large hole in the nipple to ensure that the flow rate is greater than the breast milk flow.
Because when feeding breast milk, the baby will feel warmer in the mother's arms, so if you use a bottle to feed, the milk should be completely warmed and slightly warmer than usual. Let your baby sit on your knees straight, calm your baby's restlessness, and avoid milk tassels that cause your baby to suffocate or panic. Don't let your baby lie in your arms like breastfeeding. This pose can make your baby feel uncomfortable when feeding the bottle.
At the same time, parents can also transfer the baby's attention with a sounding toy or TV. After putting the pacifier in the baby's mouth, talk to the baby, let him watch TV or watch the toy, when the baby realizes that the pacifier is in the mouth. In the middle, he has begun to suck in unconsciously. After a day of trying and tossing, most babies will naturally give up their insistence on breastfeeding. Therefore, parents must not be soft-hearted and cannot compromise because the child is crying.
