My hubby is worried that it's going to make his bonding time with his daughter harder and harder for us to share equal feeding time if Tori is strictly breastfed. Now I know that I can pump but that worries me because of it just sitting in the fridge. So is it ok to breastfeed and bottlefeed with formula?
I pump a bottle a day or every other day, then DH gets to stay up all night one night a week with the baby while I get to sleep all night. I feel so refreshed when I wake up in the morning it makes me very happy. Breast milk can last a week in the fridge and a month if frozen. If your baby is used to breast milk formula will mess up her tummy pretty bad, she'll be constipated, gassy and inconsolable at times, so stick with breast milk since that's what she's used to. Both my daughter and son took a bottle within the first month because it was important to my husband to not only spend some time with his kids, but to help me be a better mom by getting some rest.
