This is my first time posting here. My baby is due at the end of March. I successfully bf my first daughter for 9 months, so I'm feeling pretty confident in my ability with this one (knocking on wood). However, with my first I was never able to get her to accept a bottle (of pumped breast milk) - which meant that for 9 months I couldn't leave her for more than 2 hours at any time... Back then, it was ok, but THIS time I will be forced to return to work. I would love to hear success stories of introducing the bottle to breastfed babies and what your timing and method was. I do NOT want to end up strictly bottle feeding, in fact I plan to personally NEVER offer her the bottle myself, but only my dh and others who's care she may be in.
Thank you all in advance, and well met!
