So after not being able to BF & having to come to terms with the guilt etc., I've finally accepted forumla feeding.
We are using Avent bottles & although there are things I like, its shorter 9 oz bottles, nipple is similar to breast (more then others I've seen), the darn things leak all over me & my son at almost every feeding. I'm ready to throw the darn things out the door & run them over with my car! My son gets so upset b/c he is hungry & I have to take it away b/c it's pouring all over us & have to mop us up & take it apart & then put it back together!! I have even considered writing a nasty letter to Avent letting them know that their products are torturous to hungry babies & hazards to the mental health of mothers. I know this is common for Avent & frankly I should suck it up if I'm going to use them - which I'm not sure how much longer that will be, but I had to rant.
On the off chance someone was able to do something to stop the leaking/pouring out, what did you do??
