Between 4 to 16 weeks I did this about twice every 3 weeks. I didn't let myself go more than 6 hours without pumping or nursing and my husband wasn't allowed to give more than one bottle (or two "half" bottles). Plus I pumped extra before or after.
I am very paranoid because I have an acquaintance who had low-milk supply because her husband gave bottles every night and she slept 8 hours. (What amazes me is that she doesn't know the two things are connected!)
Now that I am working full-time I don't do it because I have already replaced so many feedings with pumping sessions.
What worries me is that your husband says your loved one took the bottle so fast. Get the slowest flow nipple possible (and you never have to graduate to faster flow nipples-your breasts don't change flow rates so why should your bottle). Different brands of newborn nipples can have different flow rates. Also see this link:
