I didn't use a bottle until I had to go back to work. I worked nights and pumped for him so the DH had enough for the next night.

sns for the first 9 weeks, then bottles after that.  my son will be 14 months and will only have had formula 2 times because we use donated breastmilk.

The first time I gave him a bottle was around 2 months. He was in the nicu for the first week and had to have bottles there. It was quite the battle getting him to bf, I would have been ok with him never getting one. However, we had an event to go to without him, so he needed to take a bottle.

He refused any bottle offered. He didn't take a sippy til he was almost a year old.

My son will be a year in 2 weeks... I have never given him a bottle. If he is with me he gets from the tap. He has taken bottles from my mom Dh and a close friend when I'm not around.
