    Default Do I need to pump when I introduce the bottle?

    Hello...

    Although I've only been breastfeeding for about one week I wanted to know whether I need to still pump my breast when I introduce the bottle for my daughter's feeding?

    Thanks...

    In the early weeks/months whenever a feeding is missed or a feeding is replaced with a supplement, it's a good idea to pump or hand express. This will help prevent plugged ducts, mastitis, and reduced milk production.

    HTH!
