Re: best bottle?

dont stress. She is still young. I would start a bottle in the next week or so. Make sure your breastfeeding is well estalished and she has a good latch.

I WOH full time so my babies have bottles at daycare. Each one i started at 3 weeks with a bottle. With DS1 the only bottle he would take was a wide nipple bottle. he like playtex ventair or drop ins the best I tried a ton of different ones before i found one he liked. i didn't try any others with DS2 or DD. I would start with a wide nipple first since it is more like the breast and make sure you have the slow flow.

I had DH give a bottle at least once a week. You dont need to give a bottle every day for her to take one while you are gone. None had any trouble going back and forth between breast and bottle.

DD currently takes 3 bottles while I am at work and then nurses when I am home.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
