My son is 7 weeks old. I had a surgery done in my left breast due to breast abscess and there is very little milk in my right breast. I have been supplementing with formula milk. The doctor advised not to go with bottle feeding as it might choke or infect his ears. However, he doesn't seem to drink in the spoon and is quite comfortable with the bottle feeding.
Cos of the nipple confusion he refuses to feed on my right breast as well. It could be because the supply is low and he excepts the same flow like how it is in the bottle .
I have two questions.
1. Have you ladies been feeding your kids with bottle .If yes, can you give me some tips on how to avoid things life ear infection or chocking.
2. Secondly how do we avoid the nipple confusion ? Even if the supply is low, I would still love my baby to drink at least the little that comes in my right breast. Pls advice.
