Introducing bottle of BM

I want to introduce a bottle of BM to DS2 because I am taking a night class once a week beginning in 3 weeks. He is 6 wks old and (luckily) a great nurser. I had issues with DS1 so I know how tough bf issues can be.

I have tried it twice (when he is hungry but not starving) but he doesn't seem to know how to suck it. I feel like the nipple is too big but I read that I need a nipple with a wide base, and the ones that I have found are big. And it is no bigger than my own nipple.

With DS1 I used the Medela nipple at first but I can't find with a collar that fits. Do you think that would help? I might find it online. Should I see a LC? Any tips?

Thanks

I love the MaM bottles, they are slightly flatter one direction and are the most breast-like IMO, sorta like a paci.

Re: Introducing bottle of BM

we did nuk bottles with DD, but she wouldnt take a bottle from me. someone else had to give it to her and they had to hold the back of her little head like she was nursing, and snuggle front to front. she was a picky little thing, but got it eventually!
