I start work in about 2 weeks. over this past weekend i started to introuce my 2 1/2 month old a bottle.. yeah.. lets just say that didnt go over too well... my husband was the one tring to feed ehr then i tried. she was crying too much, we tried about 15 min.. so i gave her my boob and she sucked like crazy, with a mean look and moaning at me at the same time like "dont do that to me again mom!"
i tried again today but this time i nursed her first then took out my nipple and gave her the bottle... yeah i thought i could pull a fast one but she is just to damn smart!... instant frown and she just gaged as the milk was trickling down her throat. she did bite the nipple.. but is confused how to suck i guess???
so anyway my question is.. how long does it usually take for her to suck on the nipple? im using a soft yellow nuk.
or does anyone have advice on other ways to feed her the bottle?
oh and another question.. lol... since she didnt drink much out of the bottle how long is it good for?? can i still try at her next feeding? do i put it in the fridge right away? or can it be set out room temp?
thanks in advance!
