    Re: Refusing Bottle

    I completely relate to this. Both my children had the same issues. They didn't seem to know how to suck from a bottle. We bought every different bottle on the market and none worked. For my son,...

    I have never managed to pump much - when I recently went away for 2 days, I was still only manging a few ounces with an electric pump.

    I agree that after this length of time, your supply will just adapt so you will produce plenty of milk in the day and not at night. I feed my daughter and son in the morning at 7 and then I am at...

    My husband can get our daughter to sleep with rocking, but with me she has to nurse. I don't really mind that though - the main thing is that she does get to sleep. My son had to be nursed to sleep...
