When do I introduce a bottle?


Hi Ladies-

Third time mom here! I EBF my first two babies because at the time I was a stay at home mom, so I didn’t have to worry about giving bottles (and plus they’d never take them!).

My third little girl is due soon and I work full time now, so she will have to take a bottle of course. I plan on nursing and pumping both. When do I introduce a bottle to her without causing nipple confusion? I don’t want to introduce it too late and risk her refusing to take a bottle. I have 8 weeks of maternity leave so she’ll have to have the hang of it by then.

Thank you!
