My 10 month old preemies are about 61/2 7 months adjusted. They ate fine from the bottle until about 4 months old. All of a sudden they got so disorganized. Ive tried every nipple and bottle that money can but and its seems like if i didnt give them a bottle on a schedule theyd never eat at all. It seriously makes me cry a lot. They take only between 4-7oz. 4 times a day but god knows how many if i didnt just feed them. They eat food beautifully!!! They each have a yogurt a vegetable and fruit mixed with cereal a day. I dont know what to do to get them to eat the bottle better. They suck and suck and suck and its takes forever for any formula to get down and they just seem worn out after taking the bottle. They are in speech therapy for months and its doesnt seem to do any good. Is it possible for a baby to not get hungry. I know i know dont ignore the hunger signs but they stick everything in their mouth all day so thats not the issue they just dont seem to enjoy bottles. Please help any advice? Anyone going through the same problem?
