Thank you for your help .sincerly yours fatima

Hi, fatima,

If she was feeding successfully before, there is no reason she shouldn't again if she is hungry.  A bottle is easier to feed from than a breast.  I would go back to consistently drinking a lot to increase your milk supply and go back to frequent feeds to stimulate milk production by her sucking action. If hungry enough, and not offered a bottle, she will again nurse.  Try having someone other than you give her a bottle, if it is really needed.

Good luck Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
