masha and her bottle feeding story

masha was introduced to bottle feeding since day 1. at tmc, she had problem to latch. and i lack the patient to teach her correctly. so day 1 she was being fed with formula (snow brand) by the nurse. day 2 onwards she breastfed but not correctly. until i had a severe nipple sore for more than 2 weeks. at that time, she was being fed with formula once in a while. so she can accept both my b.reast and bottle. every now and then i will feed her ebm in bottle. when we go out during the weekend, she will feed through bottle. until recently during prophet muhammad's birthday, she refuses the bottle. just a week before i will resume my work. i bought Anakku anti-colic initially. she rejected. then i tried avent. again, she rejected. then i tried tommee tippee. she rejected. MAM she rejected. so i'm at dead end as how to feed her through bottle. it does give my MIL a hard time. masha was being fed by spoon. but spoon is very slow. not to mention very little. just imagine, 2oz of ebm by spoon?? so by the 5th spoon feed, masha will get angry and started to sulk. she will resorted to sleeping and refuses to drink anymore. i think she loses a few grams already. and it does worry everyone especially my MIL.

so to all the mommies out there...pls help me to get masha comfortable with bottle feeding. i'm SUPER WORRY about this situation. any tips will do. i'm desperately running out of ideas. a friend suggested Adiri Natural Nurser but it no longer available in Msia for the time being. Spore is the closest place to buy. anyone can help me to buy it immediately?
