No longer likes his bottle Rss

Hi,

I have a 2 month old son who is breastfed, but I express milk and give a bottle to him when I am out and about, and when he is being babysat by his grandparents. Recently, he will only take about 80mls of the milk (drinks around 150mls) and refuses the rest and will not settle until he gets the rest of the milk by being breastfed. Any suggestions to combat this? I am going back to work in a few weeks and he will need to be able to take his bottle!!!

Thanks,
Anxious mum
I'm a new mum as well so I dont have alot of experience.
But as a Child Care Worker I have had some experience.

You could try the different sorts of teats avalible or maybe offer a dummy to get him used to different sucking techniques.

Thanks, he does have a dummy, I currently use an Avent teat as is what he preferred initially, do you know of another recommended teat for breastfed babies?
