3 month - Every feed is a Struggle!!!

Since day one I changed my baby from breastfeeding to bottle feeding I' ve been struggling! Drinking seems to be a very big EFFORT. He now drinks 700ml or less per day although he sleeps through the night. I' ve tried different bottles and play around with nipple sizes....still such a pain. He' s 68cm and weighs 8kg. His head : 47.5cm,what should I do. His feeding around 5-6 hourly, is it normal??????/

Whatever you are doing it must be right because your baby's weight,length and head circumference are all well above the average for his age. He is really a very big baby boy.He seems very happy on the feeds you are giving him even though he is in theory taking less than he should. He sleeps through the night already.

I bought a small tin of NAN HA, do you think I should give it a go for a day or two or should I go back to S26 GOLD.
