    Question eliminating bottles

    So I visited a lactation consultant today and since I am producing milk now she told me to eliminate bottles and try alternative feeding methods. She gave me a cup, a sns, a soft feeder and told me to finger feed which ever works.. let me tell you.. I have one very fussy baby on my hands! Any tips? How long is it going to take for my son to forget the bottle? I had one lc say a day, and another said a week.

    It's hard to say. We don't really know how well infant memory works, because they can't tell us. Just keep at it with the finger feeder and the SNS and whatnot- hopefully you will see a breakthrough soon. Are you trying to get the baby to latch as much as possible? The breast might look pretty good to him after a while...

    A few days of unhappy baby will turn into years of a mutually satisfying relationship.
