  • Give her a small amount at a time. Try 1 or 2 oz. at a time to start.

  • Ask her dr. first but my youngest daughter had the same problem and her dr said to add 1/2 tsp. of rice cereal to every 2 oz. of fromula or brest milk to help thicked it. I helps if you make it and let it set for about 5 min so that when you shake it it breaks up the rice and has time to thicken or you can make it early and refridgerate it. That worked best to me.

  • were you heavily engorged or had a fastlet down?? this is probally what she got use too and now she expects it. jsut pull her off when she starts rushing. she may always be a fast eater.

  • also you can try Dr. Browns bottles, their very good and help with the air in the bottle to make sure they get the right amount of formula and not too much air

  • Dr Browns works great.. and try a nipple with a smaller hole. OR try thicking it just a bit with cereal
