Should I Try a Sippy Cup or Bottle?

QUESTION

Dear Lactation Consultant,
My daughter is 12 weeks old and has been exclusively breastfeeding. We tried introducing a bottle a day at 5 weeks with varied results. She took the bottle at times and flat out refused at other times. We stopped after a couple weeks because I was tired of trying to express milk and frustrated with her resistance. Now I'm trying to introduce the bottle again with even greater difficulty. Now that she is older perhaps I should try cup feeding? Would you recommend a cup that has a lid and spout or an open cup? I don't know what to do.

Did I Just Not Give It Enough Time?

QUESTION

Dear Lactation Consultant,
Hi there. I could not find that this question has been asked so I am going to ask. With my first child I had a c-section. I tried nursing as soon as I could (which ended up being after I was in recovery for 2 hours and they had already given him a bottle). I tried to nurse him but it didn't seem like there was any milk. I tried pumping to get the milk flowing but nothing came out.

Car Seat Crying

Some babies fall asleep almost before you're out of the driveway, but others won't spend five happy minutes in their car seats. The good news is that a few new ideas and a little time and maturity will help your baby become a happy traveler.
