trouble feeding

Hi again

I''ve been having a problem giving my daughter the bottle during the day. At night she takes her bottle with no fuss but during the day she will fuss and cry and eventually drink her milk.

My daughter is three months old and has been mix feeding almost from birth as my milk supply was just not filling her. I''m still breast feeding her ( before bedtime and in the morning) I''ve also been expressing milk enough for 2 feeds aNd then the rest of the feeds are formula

Why do you think she is fighting to take the bottle during the day?

I am not sure which of your baby's feeds are formula and which are the breast feeds and the expressed breast milk feeds.It is possible that your baby does not like the formula or it may simply be due to the environment changes you mention above.
