Bottle Feeding a Breastfed Baby

Bottle Feeding a Breastfed Baby

Bottle feeding a breastfed baby can be a whole new exercise in frustration.  They can absolutely refuse to take a bottle, and I’m sure you’ve heard many moms complain about this exact thing.  For Henley we had to try lots of different bottles before we found one or two that would actually work.  One of the […]
