5 Tips To Help Make Your Baby Adjust Easily To Bottle Feeding

by Phoebe Warts Sonographers
Getting used to motherhood takes some time. It can be overwhelming and stressful at times but also enjoyable a lot of times. While during pregnancy, you only need to take care of your health which in turn ensures your baby’s good health. This can be ensured with the help of ultrasound baby scan clinic but after giving birth, it is you who need to ensure your baby’s health. Sometimes, problems can arise if your baby refuses to transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding. There are several ways to make it easy for your baby. 



Someone Other than Mom

At first, it is quite normal that your baby will refuse it. Some prefer to keep breastfeeding if you nurse them for a longer time than necessary. If you are a mother who is always close to your baby, the transition becomes harder. If you hand over this job to your partner, then gradually your baby might get used to it. 

A Soothing Atmosphere

The atmosphere is a major influence not only during bottle feeding but also during breastfeeding. If there are too many noises and chaos in the background, your baby will become uncomfortable. Try to create a calm and soothing atmosphere. If your baby has a separate room, it is best to try bottle feeding there only. 

A Reminder Of Mom

If your baby is unable to get used to the absence of the mother, then try using something that belongs to the mother. A baby can calm and settle down if there is a presence of the mother’s scent. Wrap the bottle in the mother’s clothes and it will help. 

Timing Is Everything 

Try to feed your baby when they are drowsy if they refuse to bottle feed while being wide awake. Take your baby off to sleep and they will more easily take the bottle without a fuss. 

Try Different Positions 

Trying out different positions to ease into the bottle can also help sometimes. Eating while lying is not good for health, so don’t try that. It is best to recline them in your arms or make them sit upright. 

Try out these tips, and if your child still refuses the bottle, then consult a child doctor. While you are pregnant, make sure your baby is developing naturally with the help of Reading ultrasound baby scan clinic, so that there are no complications later on.
