Breastfeeding

Hey so I breastfed my last child til 14 months. He never took a bottle. I’m pregnant again, due anytime now. I was curious if anyone successfully was able to breastfed and bottle. I would like to bottle feed occasionally like to go out with my husband on dates. I’m afraid of baby wanting the bottle more because it’s easier. Any advice?

We do both breast and bottle. She seems to do pretty well with both. Sometimes at night she gets fussy and seems to prefer the bottle, I think because milk slows down at night.

My son had no issues whatsoever, introduced a bottle around ) weeks. If I was home I nursed and if I was gone be took bottle. My daughter took the bottle too but she made more of a fuss over it. Had to be just right temp and position lol introduced with her around 4 week mark. Goes to show each baby can be different 🤷🏼‍♀️

I started bottle feeding right after I got out the hospital because I had intentions of going back to work once my son turned 3 months. I needed him to get comfortable with the bottle for times I’m not around. He does both now at 4 months — ofc he takes the bottle more but he takes both comfortably.
