I am BFing My DD who is less then 2wks old now. I want to for 6m then pump and give it to her in a bottle I am justnot comfortable BFing her after that JMO but anyway. How hard is it to get them to drink from a bottle after being on the boob so long. Or would it be ok to just give it to her in a sippy?Answer Question

1st NEVER introduce a bottle prior to the 6 week mark. You want to wait until that time to make sure your breastfeeding relationship is established. By introducing a bottle early you have a higher chance of a failed breastfeeding relationship.
The recommendations state that at 6 months a sippy should start to be introduced to help switch baby from the bottle so I would go right for the sippy and skip the bottle all together. Good Luck but as the PP said wait and see how you feel don't make anything definite yet.
