my son was 4 wks early and weighed 4lbs 4 oz, and while in nicu, he was given formula with enfamil disposable nipples.
Since then at home, I am pumping and to feed the breastmilk, we have tried medela orthodontic, playtex, avent 1 & 2 nipples, but he dribbles a lot. He is 4wks old, and lately even the enfamil nipple is not working. seems to me for every drop he is taking in, he dribbles one. He sucks a lot, and while swallowing, a huge amount comes out. I have tried lying him flat, holding him straight, holding him slanted but same effect. I tilt the bottle away after few sucks to reduce flow, but worried this will cause gas. And he is also agitated in the process
Any advice please?
