Post subject: Winding and not taking rest of bottle
My 8 week old will not take a full bottle especially at night, she was taking 4oz no problem i upped it to 5oz as she was still hungry after each feed but now all of a sudden she only takes 2 1/2 to 3oz then gets winded and will not take any more, she cries after being winded, i try to give her the bottle but she gets annoyed and pushes away but still wants to suck so i give her a dummy, but she is only sleeping for 3 hours at night and im sure is she took a full feed she would sleep longer, ive noticed people saying to feed her lying on her back in the cot is this safe??? and what about winding her??? any advice appreciated.
