I don't want to share

My dd is almost four months old. I used to let her bf for about five min then give her a bottle of bm. She would give her one or two bottles a day and that was fine, she was taking 7-8 bottles a day. Now we are on formula, and he still wants to feed her twice a day. But now she only eats four bottles a day. Some days I just don't want to share!

Haha was is that weird? I miss the binding time with her during bf, even if we didnt do it that long. She misses it to, she is a lot more clingy to me since we stopped. She will only let dad hold her if he has food.

Your whole post is weird. Why would you only nurse for five minutes? Why is your almost four month old only getting four bottles a day if you're not nursing? If you both miss the breastfeeding why did you stop? It sounds like it was something you both enjoyed even with your odd five minute restriction.
I'm just not really sure about anything you said. I'm hoping the amount of bottles has decreased because she's learning how to use a cup. And I'm hoping her dad is only giving her a spoon or something when she goes to him and he has food because she's only three months old.

She would only nurse for about five minutes before getting frustrated. She was use to getting ebm, we had no option with her being I the nicu. They had to know how much she was getting because of the reason she was in there. We stopped because I was having supply issues, and it was taking time away from her with me having to nurse, feed, then pump. She only gets four bottles because she sleeps from eight till about seven, and she eats about every four hours. She doesn't get food, only bottles. She will only let her dad hold her if he has a bottle, otherwise she cries.

Okay. That all makes sense now. I just didn't get any of that from your op.
