'Milk Matters' - Bottle Refusal

Suzy is confident that your breastfed baby should be bottle feeding within 1 to 3 days. With Suzy’s intuitive, baby-led approach your baby learns to enjoy bottle feeding or combined breast and bottle feeding.  The success rate to date is currently 100%!

 ‘Milk Matters’ – Bottle Refusal is ideal when:

  • Your breastfed baby (2-9 months old) refuses milk from a bottle
  • Your baby will only chew on the teat or drink up to 50mls
  • You’ve already tried different bottles, teats and feeding times
  • You need to spend more quality time with your older child
  • Your partner wants to share the feeding, giving you time out
  • You need to go to a wedding, back to work …

'Milk Matters' - Bottle Refusal in detail

Suzy arrives in the early morning and spends a little time with you, the breastfeeding mother, getting some general feeding history and being introduced to your baby. If you would like to know how to express or store your milk, Suzy will be happy to advise. When your baby shows signs of hunger Suzy offers the first bottle. She will need to do once the breastfeeding mother has left, so this is the ideal time for the mother to have a spa treatment, see friends or spend quality time with the older sibling.   Your chosen family member takes on the overall care of your baby.  It’s possible that Suzy stays overnight, sometimes a little longer. Throughout the consultation Suzy keeps a particularly attentive eye on your baby’s well being, respecting your little one’s emotional needs whilst gently encouraging bottle feeding. She will keep mum updated, almost in real-time, so that everyone is well informed of events throughout the consultation period.

Once your baby has accepted the bottle feed from the family member, Suzy provides a summary of the advice offered and leaves the home and continues to offer support remotely for a further week.
