Re: When should we introduce pumped milk/bottle to newborn?

I waited until my LO was 4 weeks. He took the bottle like a champ (1 oz was all I was able to pump) and put him on the boob right after and he switched from bottle to boob easily.

I also heard the pumping too soon before your milk supply is established isn't recommended but I've only been in the breast feeding game for 2 months so it's probably best to do some research and find out what you feel comfortable doing.

Good luck Mama!

Re: When should we introduce pumped milk/bottle to newborn?

We started at 4 weeks since I had to return to work when he is 7 weeks. He would not take the bottle for 2 weeks. We were trying every other day and one day it just worked. It has been a week since I am back to work and he does not have a confusion, but I still cannot figure out if he is drinking enough from the bottle during the day when I am away, never more that 2-3 oz at a time, every 1.5-2 hr. I feel like he drinks more from the breast when I am home, same schedule every 1.5-2 hr day and night.

Re: When should we introduce pumped milk/bottle to newborn?

My newborn, now 5 weeks, had first bottle of pumped milk at 1 week. We did it at night time feeding so I could get some sleep and dh could help. Now ds gets bottle of pumped sometimes 1 per day or twice. Sometimes not at all. It just depends on when I need a break. We have had no nipple confusion at all.

After about 1 month we started bottles occasionally and both babies didn't have any confusion!
