    You can overfeed your babies. I had to pump my breastmilk and feed my baby for a year, well mostly. I nursed her for 6 weeks. And one of the things I read was to watch for over feeding because breastmilk has alot of fat in it and it could cause your baby to gain to much weight. Bottles have a faster flow that your breasts and babies tend to drink more out of bottles.

    Heather12- its so hard to slow bubs down…he is 6 weeks old and takes about 120ml formula every 3-4 hours. i give him what i can express which is betwwen 20ml and 60ml also each feed….if he doesnt get that much he just cries…its hard to know what to do. i try to slow him down by burping him but he makes a fuss. by feeding too much, it causes obesity later, is that the prob?

    My LO chugs his bottles too, well not so much now that he gets distracted by things. I always tried to stop him after every ounce or two (especially coz I still wanted to try to bf) and he would freak as well (impatient ones aren’t they) I read somewhere that if they eat too quickly they don’t realize when they’re full.

    hey i was just wondering how the nipple flow thing works? like is slow flow for newborns till 3 months or when? My mom bought these organic baby bottles for me and all that they say on them is the nipple flow it doesnt say for what months they should be used for… so i was just curious?

    alright im doing everything wrong with feeding as a mom of triplets and a 19 month old most of you cant blame me
    but i prop bottles

    anyways my question is

    my babies were preemie but now there about the size of a 4 month old
    when there 6 months
    i cut a playtex nipple and put baby food in there, and let them suck it down
    now.. is that a bad thng to do.. and horrible etc.? my niece in law who let me remind you doesnt have babies told me it was like punching my baby in the face doing that it was wrong and could strangel them

    Shelley, I am a mum to twins and think that having 3 at once, let alone 3 and a toddler must be very very hard work. I would ignore your niece in law a bit, but talk to some other mums and get their ideas. There might be some better ways to do it. In New Zealand, you can get sachets of fruit or vegetable puree baby food with a twist off top that has a tube which the babies can suck like a straw. Mind you, we are talking very liquid like baby food here, but my twins loved those things and it made feeding much easier when we were out, as they would hold them themselves and suck out their meal. Yay! My babies were prem at 34 weeks, and so I started them on babyfood a bit later than the other babies in our antenatal group. Somewhere about 6-7 months… when they seemed to be ready for it. Babies take their own time with readiness for that kind of thing anyway, but add in being premature, and I think you can give them a bit of leeway. My boys are a year now and eating well, especially now they have a few more teeth, lol! Anyway, good luck!

    shelly, i think you are not doing anything wrong with how you feed your babies, (as long as you always watch them when they eat and are doing ok), that is so innovative of you, some(often)times we(moms) use our instincts to protect and help our children grow healthy and happy, so hurray to you!

    Hmmmm not really sure where to post this but my 11 week old has suffered from trapped wind since he was born. i had him on SMA bu that made him constipated so moved to Aptamil he stills struggles with wind but now he seems to have very loose stools which explode – i’m assuming with the wind – they seem to be a healthy colour but it never stays just in his nappy – is this the size i’m using? the poops are not watery just very soft – any one got similar probs – do my babies poops seem normal?????

    hchina – My son is 3months old and i just started formula feeding. I was using s26 gold and he always seemed fussy and wasnt really interested in feeding so he never really finished a bottle. At first i thought it was because i was breastfeeding and he just didnt want it but then i changed to NAN gold HA and omg he loved it from the minute he tasted it! he always finishes his bottle now and it really has made such a difference!!! It is easy for them to digest and i have heard it is the closest tasting formula to breast milk. Hope that helps but remember every baby is different 🙂

    I recently made a discovery of the PODEE hands-free baby bottles. This is the best product for twins or multiples. All I have to do is prepare the bottles place the babies on a boppy pillow and give them the bottle that kind of works like a pacifier with a tube that goes from the bottle to the nipple. You can take a look at it on http://www.podee.com I posted a pictures on my photos. I always had one crying baby while feeding the other one, but no more!! My babies are two months old and is working perfect for them, I thought I would pass on the information since it works great for me. The bottles don’t leak. The only thing I changed was the nipple because I thought the one that came with the bottles was a little hard so I replaced it with a softer one. A pack of two is $16.99 at Babies R Us.
