I'm Katey, 32, mother to a beautiful 6 day old boy named Liam. For various reasons, we have decided to bottle feed our boy. I breastfed the first night and early the 2nd morning.
The hopital gave us enfamil premium newborn nursettes. Little Liam took to them great!! Now that we're home, we bought the same formula in powder. We have tried the 8 oz. Dr. brown bottles w/ the newborn nipples in the starter kit and some 4 oz. Avent with level 1 Avent nipples.
Sweet Liam doesn't drink as quickly or as happily from either bottle as he did the nursettes from the hospital. I'm worried hes not eating enough. He's been wrapped in a biliblanket sinnce 6 pm last night (its now 6 am) while being held against mommy and daddy. Maybe thats hindering his feeding? Probably not tho.
Any help/advice greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!! We see his pediatrician again today got more jaundice tests so we'll be sure to ask. thanks!
Many thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy.
first off congrats! second I would probably try some different bottles and nipples, maybe try some latex nipples (the brownish ones?) some babies are picky. The cheap Evenflo and Gerber bottles have small nipples like the nursette bottles so maybe give those a try? I hope he starts eating better for you!!
Congrats on your new baby! We loved the bottles from the hospital, they were the only nipples we could use at first. I tried dr browns, advent, the vent air, the only bottles he will take are the cheap evenflo bottles. He does fine with them, he is not gassy or any issues. DD would only take the Dr Browns...try a few and see what works for you.
