Only if you want to. You could just pump a bottle for him/her. But if you plan on supplementing with formula later it probably doesn't matter. He/she may not take to it tho if its their first time.

It would definitely be best for baby & grandma if you pumped. If you are dead set on introducing formula make sure to do so before you give grandma baby. Baby could have a horrible reaction, refuse the bottle all together, and become a 'different' baby after formula is given (uncomfortable crying, gassy, spit up, stomach problems, etc. etc.). All of which you don't want grandma to be the one to have to deal with, especially for the first time.
