I have a newborn, week old, we left the hospital without being shown feeding techniques, burping/winding, how baby is after being fed etc
I feed her in my arm slightly upright, use MAM bottle 130mls at present.
My questions are do you have to stop the baby feeding halfway and wind? Do you let them do whole bottle before winding? Do you wind them after the feed? What do you do after the feed? A midwife told me on the phone sit them up and wait, another told me winding is a myth and put her straight down when she’s finished. To me that sounds wrong, gravity will bring it back up if you put them straight down? Today I noticed she vomited one feed up, two trickles of milk came out and I fear she will choke and I’m doing something wrong, I’ve had no guidance no family support and no sleep so I’m right at the end of my wits and the response I got when I rang up the hospital ward for help was call your mum or ask the midwife to come tomorrow! Thanks!
When I put her down in Moses basket I watch as she squirms at times, has a pained expression others but doesn’t cry.
