Somebody...

 Had her first bottle last night.
As mommy hovered and cried on the inside that my girl is 6 weeks old and that she took the bottle with no complaints. For the record, my sweet pea ate all 3 and a half ounces in about 5-7 minutes from a SLOW flow nipple and then cried for more. Nice try, but she still nursed after. Next time we will try a little more I guess, we didn't have anymore breastmilk defrosted and the bottle definatley doesn't make her tired  and relaxed like nursing does!

My LO did the same thing. What we had to do was stop and give her pauses and burp a little more often. We try to make the feeding go as long as a normal nursing session. That helped a lot! GL

Oh congrats on getting her to take a bottle. It's sad and hard, but it will give you a break!
