The baby does not accept bottles. Many mothers have tried to use milk bottles to vigorously fill the baby with milk; apply some breastmilk to the bottle mouth; feed them with a bottle when they are hungry; find someone other than the mother to feed the bottle so that the baby cannot reach the taste of the mother; The baby seems to sleep but not sleep, and is fed with a bottle when she wakes up; breast milk is fed halfway and then put in her mouth with a bottle …
The feedback received is basically still not eating, still do not like bottles. Because babies are naturally dependent on their mother’s nipples and breast milk, and when the child is crying a lot, many parents will switch back to breastfeeding softly, so there has been no way for them to eat bottles.
How to let your baby accept the baby bottles?
It takes time for your 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 the baby’s eating time into morning, middle, and night, and because the baby is more likely to accept new things during the day, then they can choose to try the baby at noon. You can tease him with a bottle first, then feed your baby a few sips to familiarize him with the bottle, and then feed him with more bottles when the baby’s mood is stable.
Then, pay attention to the feeding position, and change the nipple that is closer to breast milk. In addition, frequent brand changes of milk powder may also cause the baby to be tired of milk.
When changing bottles, many babies cry and even refuse to feed, kicking and beating. At this time, the parent’s patience and determination are needed. As a parent, you cannot be too softhearted. When the parent gradually shortens the period of breastfeeding, the baby feels hungry, and you will not compromise to breastfeed him. He will Take the bottle slowly.
Alternatively, you can try this:
Moms can try to set aside a day for the baby to adjust to the bottle and accompany him to switch this way. Although this requires a process, in general, a whole day is enough, and usually children will not persist for so long. First of all, the mother needs to squeeze the milk to feed the baby with a bottle, because the baby is already used to that taste, and during this period only feeds the bottle. First, let the baby get used to changing the feeding tool without resisting.
Moms need to be careful when feeding. Do not give the baby anything to eat or drink. When the child feels hungry and has appetite, feed the baby with a bottle. It is important to note that it is best to give your baby a soft nipple-like pacifier that is closest to breast milk. In addition, use a regular, elongated feeding bottle that matches any type of pacifier. Use a sterilized needle to poke a larger hole in the pacifier to ensure a larger flow than breast milk.
Because the baby will feel warmer in the arms of the mother when breastfeeding, if you switch to bottle feeding, the milk should be completely warmed and slightly warmer than usual. Let the baby sit straight on your knees to soothe the baby’s uneasy mood, and avoid suffocation or panic caused by the milk tassel passing through the ambassador. Don’t let your baby lie in your arms like breastfeeding. This position will make your baby feel uncomfortable while feeding.
At the same time, parents can also use the audible toy or TV to divert the baby’s attention. After putting the pacifier in the baby’s mouth, talk to the baby and let him watch TV or watch the toy. Here, he had started sucking unknowingly. 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 be compromised because their children are crying.
