It can. Bottle preference is a very real thing and can happen at any time. That's why you should only use bottles when mom has to be away from baby.
My LO gets a bottle during the day while I'm at work. As soon as I'm home and on the weekends he only is on breast. He didn't seem to have an issue.
Quoting Shyamli:I am expressing milk to increase my milk supply but giving that expressed milk will make her more used to bottle.. I dnt knw wat to do..
Why are you trying to increase your supply? What makes you think that it needs increasing? Most moms who think their supply is low really have perfect supply. We can help you figure it all out.
Unless there is something wrong with baby's latch/suck, then nursing mroe frequently is a MUCH better way to increase milk supply.
How old is baby?
Why do you feel supply is low?
Do you need to leave baby for work or school or something?
No need to introduce a bottle until you need to because you're going to be away from baby.
Pumping as an extra on top of nursing can raise supply but giving bottles instead of nursing will lower supply
