Due to separation from my lo at night for 5-6 hours, we've been supplementing formula at night. I am now pumping and building a freezer stash & my goal is to switch to EBF for his night bottles very soon.
We are having a problem with nipple confusion--he now only nurses "fuss-free" first thing in the morning when my milk is super abundant & easy to get. As the day wears on, he is less and less willing to "work" at the breast & I end up with a screaming frustrated lo & I turn to a bottle of formula.
My supply is adequate--if I do give him a bottle for the feeding, I go ahead and pump.
How do you get baby to prefer the breast to the bottle without getting him totally frustrated?
I use the "slow flow" nipples with the Playtex drop-ins system--are there better, slower nipples out there?>
my lo is 6 weeks old
