So, our little guy, aged 10 weeks, breast feeds really well. (I like to say he gets that from me, his dad. Is that wrong?)
And when I bottle feed him pumped milk he also chugs it down. But often before he finishes the bottle, he cries. Really loudly.
It sounds like he's in pain, so I burp him. But I even with a successful belch or two, he keeps crying.
We've tried three different bottle types: Born free, medela, and Dr. Brown's. I've had occasional success and got really excited the other night when he downed a bunch of milk from the Dr. Brown's with no tears.
But tonight the problem came back. He finished almost all the milk from the Dr. Brown's and seemed fine. Then the pained crying started again, in earnest.
I'm thinking about trying a different nipple size. Right now we're using the Dr. Brown's size one. But I don't know if I should go bigger or smaller. I've heard different things.View Thread
