Re: fussy nurser/slow let down
How many bottles is she getting, on a daily basis? Sometimes babies fuss because they know that the bottle delivers immediate rewards, whereas the breast means working for a meal. If this is the case, you may want to shelve the bottles for a while- difficult when returning to work, I know!- or at least minimizing their use. If you can get your LO to accept that eating means working for it, she may decide that fussing for a bottle isn't going to get her anywhere and may learn to work a little harder to generate a letdown. I don't think 45 seconds is that long for a letdown, though!
