Q.

Sleepless nights - please help

Hi doc
Could you kindly assist, my 3 month old refuses to take a bottle. I have tried evey type there is available on the shelf but she refuses - she wants to be nursed. I know this is a good thing however I am back at work and have to make arrangements to get back home by 14:00 which is not suitable for my boss. What can I do to make her take the bottle. I have also tried different types of formulas. I also think that she is not having a full tummy on breast milk and does not sleep at night. She is awake every 45 mins to be nursed - this is casuing alot of tension as I am getting tired. Please help

It would really be in your best interests to take your baby to a baby clinic/breast feeding clinic for advice.
