    I've been using Avent bottle, size 1 nipple. He's been getting all breastmilk through the bottle (with the exceptions of convenience i.e. like when we're not at home/don't have a bottle handy--then i nurse him whereever we are) . I've been comfort nursing him a couple of times a day, but the past week, he's lost that wide open mouth approach to latching.

    cool if baby is still latching on some thats great.
    Just keep trying..
    was baby born early? SOmetimes it just takes them a while to get the hang of nursing.

    slow flow nipples are best.
    some moms find if the skip the bottles for a few days they can coach the baby back to the breast
