problems with leaking bottles

Postby Josiefl » Fri May 01, 2015 6:02 pm

I'm wondering can anyone help! Mt dd is 6 days old I was bf but found it very demanding and she wasn't getting enough, so I changed to avent natural bottles as they are meant to b closet thing to breast, however the bottles seem to b leaking r else dd is getting too much in her mouth and spitting it out! She is only on 3oz bottles so she may only get 2 1/2oz

Same problems I'm having the last few days but my lo is 7 months, but we only recently got a microwave and it only started happening since then. Do you use the microwave to heat the bottles?

No just in jug of water don't like microwaves at all even for my own food! Don't know what to do I rang avent this morning as I has bought new teats yesterday and no questions asked should have replacement bottles in wk r I can bring them back to where I bought them and get a refund which I find kinda strange that this was offered straight out I also looked it up online and loads said they leaked so annoying!! Any recommendations for alternatives

We use the mam brand & find them brilliant. There's a few bits to put together but once you get used to them they're very simple to use. They're on sale in mamas & papas now too. They're very good for colic & reflux.

I use avent bottles and love them.at the start we had that problem and kept closing them really tight and after much googling I found out NOT to over tighten them is the trick.which actually works.so I don't know if that will help with yours but I would try it before buying new bottles.use the newborn #1 teat and if its leaking I would take the top off and put it back and don't use much force closing it.obviously closing it tight enough tho lol!hope that works!
Maybe your lo is just adjusting after being breastfed?the milk flow is faster from the bottle so maybe try holding up straighter and take little breaks.if u c how much baby takes over 24 hrs rather than at each feed.i used to find if my dd drank less one day shed balance it out the next day.if she has 8 2.5oz bottles that is 20oz which is plenty.and watch the nappies also if she is weeing and pooing good she is getting enough.i think its about 2/2.5 oz per pound baby weighs.8lb baby should get 16/20oz in 24hrs roughly.i was a big worrier with dd!
