Why should I have my baby assessed if he / she is bottle fed?
With bottle feeding, the baby may have trouble drinking the bottle completely because it is not possible to make a good seal with the lips and create negative pressure with the tongue. Other symptoms may include: “playing” with the bottle, clicking sounds, consuming a lot of air, colic, spitting, burping and reflux may play a role. Drink the bottle very slowly or not completely empty. Less than average growth can also sometimes be a reason.
