We have just started our baby (16 weeks actual, 8 weeks corrected) on one bottle of formula a day and the rest EBM. Have noticed that she is drinking about 140-150ml ebm but when it’s time formula she struggles to drink 90ml. She is then hungry again sooner than after her ebm bottles
Just wondering if anyone else had this issue and if it was because their baby didn’t like the type of formula or if it’s just that transitioning from ebm? Any suggestions would be super helpful! 😊

ash16 : when did you start? It can definitely be a taste issue. I’d recommend transitioning with a bottle of 50/50 EMB and formula and see if that helps (unless it’s an increased calorie formula needed for weight gain). You can even start at 25% formula and 75% EBM. Otherwise do 50/50 for a couple of days then 75% formula and 25% EBM and follow her lead.

You can also evenly spread out the formula throughout the day….so the equivalent of one bottle of formula divided into however many bottles of EBM she gets (6-8 I assume). This is definitely more work but keeps taste consistent.
