Re: Mami, this is an agonizing way to get my lechita
Are you trying to give the bottles yourself? Often babies are very reluctant to take a bottle from mom, because they don't understand why mom won't give them the real thing.
Have you tried lots of different bottles and nipples?
Also, have you tasted the expressed milk? Some moms find that their stored milk develops a rancid or soapy taste due to excess lipase. Scalding the milk prevents the problem.
Finally, 2-2.5 oz/1.5 hour period is actually just fine. Most babies require only 1.5-2 oz of milk per hour of separation from mom.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
