I plan to exclusively BF my baby, due in January. However, after 6-8 weeks (or whenever I feel like its going well and we're ready) I would like to give him/her a bottle once a week, to keep the baby familiar with bottles and give DH a chance to feed him/her. I really want to go to a year and I think not having the burden of being the ONLY feeding option will go a long way for my stress levels. I'll be pumping milk for the bottle we give. Will one bottle once a week mess too much with my supply, or give baby a flow preference? Are there any things I need to watch out for? I really want to find a happy medium here. Thanks for the advice!
