Sometimes it's much easier for me to give my 6 week old a bottle of ebm because of her erratic eating. I don't want to formula feed. I know this might come off bad, but when she's going through odd eating which is many times and say I'm trying to give the boys a bath or leave to go out somewhere for any length of time, it becomes really challenging and is keeping me from wanting to leave the house. It also frees me up sometimes and allows my husband to do something while he sits there lol. Not complaining about him sitting there so to speak as he works god awful hours but sometimes I need a little help in this department.
Today due to having to pump and dump and having made a stash for a procedure I had to have, I learned that she can drink her 3 oz from the bottle pretty timely and get it done with. When I feed her, she really takes her time and enjoys - and I'm the only one in this family who can feed her =). I don't mind that and I love it but there are like I said times when I need to hurry things up a little. She's only small once and I know it gets better. So I was hoping to somehow make this work with both expressing and straight feeding.
Does anyone have any experience with this or understand what I'm feeling? Is it possible to have this work out without creating a mess?
