Thread: transition bottle to breast

    Default transition bottle to breast

    How do i get my 10 day old baby back on the breast? She was in the special care nursery because of blood type incompatibility and fed with a tube down her nose and the bottle. I'm pumping for her but I'd rather breastfeed. When I try she takes a few sucks then stops and cries. What's the best way to wean her off the bottle?

    Sorry you had a rough start. This link may help.

    How often are you pumping. If you are pumping instead of nursing especially at first it is a good idea to try to pump every two hours.
    This link is also helpful in the mean time.
