Clare and Bessie talk you through paced bottle feeding which is a really useful technique, if you need to use a bottle, to help your baby control how much they are drinking. You can combine this technique with some skin-to-skin while you feed for an extra-nurturing experience.
Always remember to talk with your IBCLC, Midwife, Health Visitor or a medical professional before using this technique if your baby is preterm or is very poorly.
It may also a good idea to chat to your IBCLC about the reasons you feel you need to use a bottle as there may be another solution that will suit you and your baby better.
