I am trying to get my dd to take a bottle of em once a day so I can run to the office or on an appt and not have to worry about getting back home intime to feed her. We have been trying for about 3 weeks and all she will take at any given time (if she will take any) is 1 to 2 oz. I am wondering since I have an OALD if she is not getting milk fast enough out of the bottle and then gives up. I have tried stage 1 and stage 2 nipples and it has not seemed to make a difference. My dh has been giving her the bottle bless his heart he is so patient and tries and tries and tries. When she gets really upset we just quit and I bf her. are we teaching her that if she cries she get the real deal or is she to young to know this? Should we not give in and just keep giving her the bottle and while she just take it if she get hungry enough. Hopefully that is not the answer b/c I don't know if I could bear watching that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Second question on pumping, with my OS she only nurses on breast at each feeding. When pumping should I just pump the other side or should I wait to stimulate another feeding? I don't want to cause anymore supply problems than I already have.
