Bottle-feeding Consultation



A consultation with one of our consultants can assist you in identifying and resolving bottle-feeding problems. The knowledge gained will enable you to recognize how to encourage your baby to love bottle-feeding. You then get to cherish this special time together, confident in the knowledge that you are providing for his/her nutritional and emotional needs. After booking, please complete your questionnaire here at your earliest convenience.

There are four to five steps involved in a Bottle-feeding Consultation. 

STEP 1 - Questionnaire: Once you have booked a consultation, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a link to an online questionnaire. Please complete the questionnaire at a time convenient to you, but submit in advance of your scheduled appointment. 

STEP 2 - Video: After reading your answers to the questionnaire, your consultant might request to see a video of your baby feeding. (This step is not always necessary).

STEP 3 - Discussion: Your consultant will contact you at the scheduled time via the communication method of your choice. This part of the consultation process generally takes between 40 to 75 minutes. [Note: We don't need to see your baby at this time.] 

STEP 4 - Written plan: As soon as possible following the discussion, your consultant will send you a written plan. This includes the information discussed, plus links to online articles that you may find helpful. 

STEP 5 - Review: If you are not observing signs of improvement in your baby's feeding within the time-frame provided, your consultant will review.

The types of bottle-feeding problems we can assist with include... 

- also called feeding strike or phobia - where a baby who at one time fed well now fusses or refuses to eat despite obvious signs of hunger. 

Bottle refusal - where a breastfed baby refuses to accept bottle-feeds.

Sleep-feeding - where a baby only eats or eats better when drowsy or asleep. 

Reverse-cycle feeding patternwhere a baby drinks more milk at night compared to the day.

Snack-feeding - where a baby consumes only a little milk and demands feeding more often than expected for age.

<span style="color: #78bbbe;">WHY WE SUCCEED WHERE OTHERS FAIL</span>

Our expertise lies in resolving ‘behavioral’ problems - which are the most common of all reasons for physically well babies and toddlers to become distressed and/or experience feeding, sleeping, and growth problems. We provide practical parenting advice related to infant feeding, settling, and soothing methods.

We are renowned for providing effective drug-free solutions to complex baby care problems that health professionals - who focus only on physical causes - are unable to solve. Medications, dietary change, and surgical procedures will not resolve behavioral feeding, sleeping, growth, and crying baby problems. (See our Testimonials).

The power to fix your baby care problem lies in your hands. You just need to learn how. We have the knowledge and experience to guide you.
