nursing/bottle feeding

OMG we finally found a bottle that E. will eat expressed milk from..she refused the Avent ones that came with my pump and the glass generic ones she used in the hospital when born, then we bought a Playtex drop in’s with brown nipple to try, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet.  Today I was at a Lawton’s Drugs baby expo and in my samples bag they gave me this bottle,www.amazon.com/Gerber-NUK-Bottle-Starter-Set/dp/B000U66XUA/ref=sr_1_1 which seemed to have the perfect shape nipple, we tried it and huzzah, no problems. They have to use their mouths almost exactly like they do on the breast, so it worked. Good to know just in case.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. The only one G will take is the Dr. Brown’s wide neck…cuz apparently I have big BBs lol. Haven’t tried those one, but the nipples look very similar to Medela ones that were out a few years ago. We tried them and G didn’t like them.

    • aw man – I was all excited, then saw it was one I’ve already tried with no luck.
      I’m actually going to start teaching Lily how to use a sippy cup because she’s refused practically every brand and nipple now. Argh.

      • I think it was around 6m when we introduced a sippy with my first and had no problems… good luck!

      • I was thinking of doing the sippy thing too asap, then it’s easier, just skip the bottle altogether, thankfully I got this Gerber Nuk bottle for free, and she likes it, so were good for now.
