    millies taken bottles from my mum, my dad and my boyf; but apart from me trying her with a small amount (like 25ml) of hand-expressed b.milk when she was one or two months old (which she didnt take hardly, so i dont really count that) iv never bottle-fed myself til today.
    i was nervous about holding her, coz im used to her lying on her side when i feed her, but with the bottle she had to be on her back, i dont kno what angle to hold her at so she doesnt splutter?
    also, i could see lotsa bubbles like honeycomb move from the teat into the bottle, does that indicate im doing it right, or am i giving her lots of wind?!
    my boyf said im doing it right, but i think he just says that so i stop going on about it asking him :lol: i want some reassurance from people who know!

    However is comfy for you hun, I used to lie Lib back, but now she pretty much sits up to drink it.....at the end of the bottle she always sucks them honeycomb bubbles out, just makes sure you take time to wind her properly afterwards, and you'll have a quieter day :D

    sounds fine to me :) but as emmylou said, jack tends to sit up when he has his bottle now, but is a bit older

    I found that Matilda like to sit facing front sorta laying on my chest when she has her milk but she also tends to sit upright when she has her bottle now, you'll probably find that she'll wriggle around until she finds a comfortable position
