Hi Jo! Great to hear from you. What a wee porker Ellie is LOL.
OH Jo, she sounds like she's doing fab - you must be absolutley delighted. Ollie is 13 weeks on Tuesday, so they're practically twins
As for TT teats - no chance - that's the ones that Sam eventually settled on... Last night he only took 50mls - then fed from me for 15 minutes - kinda defeats the purpose! LOL. I'm almost glad Sam was early when he came as like Ellie, the neo-natal nurses got him into a 4 hour routine and we were strict at keeping him to it. Ollie - well he's a law unto himself and up until a few nights ago, he'd be up every hour
He knows his mind does our wee Ollie...
Jules - you made me laugh with the singing tale - I'll tell DH
He was given expressed milk up until 8 weeks, but he was feeding so often that I gave that up as I was knackered - mind you - he still took the same amount... He just seems to get bored - the wee monkey. Someone has suggested that Mothercare do bottles for babies with cleft palettes, but they're great for fussy babies...
The breastfeeding clinic have told me that some babies don't take bottles at all and to try a 'Doidy' cup and to miss out bottles altogether...
Thanks for the responses
