My 5 week old was feeding very well. She was a quick eater 5-10 minutes per breast. I have been pumping and we have given her the occasional bottle of EBM.
The past few days she will take one side for a few minutes, then freak out. She screams and cries and will not calm down until I give her a bottle. I am not sure if she gets tired and the bottle is easier. We are using the Nuk bottles with a slow nipple. She really has to work to get the milk out, so I don't think it is that much easier.
Sometimes (at night) she will go through both breasts without a problem, but during the day, she just wants the bottle. I keep pumping to keep up my supply, but I don't know what to do. She just keeps screaming if I try and giver her my breast. I'm at my wits end!
