Paced Bottle Feeding
This video demonstrates paced bottle feeding as a way to make sure that your baby drinks from a bottle at a pace that is closer to breastfeeding, preventing them from over eating and having stomach upset after feedings. This is especially helpful for moms when they return to work, as it is important to make sure the child's caregiver is not over-feeding the baby. An infant should get 1 to 1-1/4 oz per hour that mom is away. If the infant is fed 2 oz per hour, mom will likely not be able to pump enough while at work to keep up with the demand, and the baby will not be hungry enough to nurse when mom gets home. This will inevitably result in mother's milk supply drastically decreasing.
