Hi! My daughter is one month old and EBF. Sometime within the next couple months, I will be returning to work. I will be working infrequently ... any where from 2 to 4 12-hour shifts a month. So my husband will be bottle feeding her expressed milk while I'm working.
My daughter is doing good with breastfeeding now, but the first couple weeks were a little rough. She was extremely sleepy and we had some latch issues. I don't want to ruin my (super) hard work at overcoming those issues and sticking with breastfeeding by giving a bottle too soon. I've read bottles can be introduced around 3-4 weeks old, but I'm still kind of leary about giving her a bottle at this point.
So, any advice on when I should introduce a bottle? Any advice on methods for giving a bottle? Also, what is the best kind of bottle/nipple to use? I only want my daughter to bottle feed when I cannot physically be with her.
Thank you all for your help!
