Upset tummy after bottle of EBM

Postby Kmc » Wed Feb 03, 2010 1:05 pm

I have been giving my 2 month old baby bottles of EBM to get him ready for my mum to look after him while I attend a wedding. After each bottle he has a very upset tummy for the rest of the day. I am wondering if it's something to do with the teat of the bottle? I'm currently using one which is recommended for 0-3 month olds. Any ideas???
I placed it in warm water to warm the milk slightly.

:? thats weired.

how are you heating it? microwave or stove top or not at all.

microwaving isnt recommended as it kills some of the "goodness"

because she is recieving it from a bottle are you sure you are burping her after it to stop this upset? its stange she is upset for the rest of the day :( poor thing. hopefully someone else might now. (mine never took a bottle and still preferes the boob even over water lol)

I found i had to stop DD often when giving her a bottle and 'burp' her (it could take a while but it was always there i always stopped about half way and then at the end to. this was all before i knew about paced feeding and DD hasn't had a bottle since i found out about that, probabbly won't till march when i go back to work.

hope you can figure it out
