I ebf all four of my children, and I am currently preggers with baby #5 who is due in 2 weeks. =) I plan on giving baby nothing but breast milk for the first 6 months.
I may have to work part-time and I was wondering if anyone has had any success in transitioning from bottle to breast. My oldest two had no problem going back and forth, although I feel it ended our breastfeeding early than I wanted- around 6 months. My last two did NOT take to the bottle at all, which was fine with me since I was a sahm anyway. But if I need to work part-time I would like to know which bottles to invest in. Which ones cause the least nipple confusion and which ones are most like mom?
I would appreciate ANY feedback on bottles brands and experiences, good and bad. I allow my children to self-wean, the first two weaned around 6 months, my son was 8 months and last dd was 2 1/2.
Is it better to introduce the bottle (of breast milk) sooner or later? Can this cause my milk supply to diminish at all?
