Yeah, a lot of people will introduce bottles quickly, before baby has nursing really "down", and then say "Oh, baby hates nursing and refuses it, will only take the bottle, so we just switched."
There's usually no need to introduce bottles in the first month or so, and it's just not a good idea.
There will always be some people who did it and it worked out just fine for them, but that's not the norm.

you're able to stay home for a while!

You can always use them for cloth wipes for diapering - that's all we used for wipes with the older 2 boys, with Levi I did splurge and get us some fancy wahm-made wipes, but the washcloths work great and they're super cheap!

haha, yeah, that would work if we did cloth wipes but we don't and definitely aren't going to start.

Re: Not trying to be selfish...

I'd start one right away so its there when people ask. In fact I've had a hidden amazon registry for a potential #2 for years. Every time I see something that is too young for DS Or something I wanted for DS but never got I move to my hidden amazon registry. As soon as I announce I will clean it up and make it public, I may not even have a shower for #2 but people will want to still give gifts and like to have ideas. My son, just turned 3, I keep an amazon wish list for him. We got several gifts off of it yesterday, I also keep his sizes current on it using the "I want" stickies for people.
