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?

So is nipple confusion a myth? It sounds like it. I’m really a first time second round breastfeeding mom ( didn’t go to well with my first I gave up quickly) I’m giving it my all this time trying to get a better handle and understanding of this breastfeeding cuz I want that bound with my baby. My son is only 6 days old

My son will be 11 months in 2 days. When he was born I started pumping and gave him bottles also. He stated to prefer the bottle so I stopped and strictly breastfed and we got back on track within 3 days. He still prefers the boob but I give him a bottle in the morning with his supplements in them. And whenever we go on dates he has bottle.

My Lactation consultant recommended ‘The First Years, Breastflow Bottle’. It mimics the breast and uses suction and compression. Check it out!

Hii, I had to supplement the first few weeks and I didn't have a great milk supply but I still nursed as much as I could. So my baby was going back and forth between bottle and breast since he was born. I found that the MAM bottle made the transition a lot easier for us.. Now I breastfeed a lot more and occasionally when we go out we take a bottle with us in case I can't nurse him or if we need to go out, my mom will give him a bottle. The MAM bottles are supposed to be precisely for that purpose. He is now almost 8 weeks.

Hi!!! I had this same worry & what I do now is just give the bottle at night time on his last feed before bed time & he sleeps almost through the night! Then I breastfeed throughout the day, but don’t be worried about the “nipple confusion” or anything else that they say! Your baby will be just fine!!! & no matter what they will always prefer the breast because they get to bond with mommy & get fresh, warm milk!
