  • Call the Dr. With that issue, the Dr. is the only one who can answer your questions.. I wouldn't even want to guess.

  • Sounds like the bottles might be too big. Try cutting them in half. You'll hapf to feed more often but your chances might be better that she keeps them down.

  • maybe you should try 10 5 ounce feedings. my DD had a throwing up problem, and i fed her 2 ounces every 2 hours. she took to it just fine and im spacing her feedings out now. she drinks 6 ounces every 3-4 hours with no problems anymore.
