3 week old sleeps with bottle? ❤

Hi! My daughter Marli sleeps With the bottle in her mouth. She hates pacifiers. She sucks on it and then falls asleep. She sleeps on her side close to me. Is this okay?

Hi Tatyanna, that's not good. I would try a bunch of different pacifiers until you find one she likes. If not you need to just get her to be happy without one (self soothing).

If she is falling asleep with formula in the bottle that can cause a higher risk for ear infections plus choking on spit up during the night.

If the bottle is empty that is not good for her little tummy because she is sucking in air.

Hope this is helpful :)
