I've been nursing full time since day one of my daughter's life. She is 8 weeks now. I will be going back to work and need my baby to be able to take to a bottle. What nipples and bottles work well for a baby that is breastfed?
Also what steps should I take to get her to take to the bottle? How many times a day should I try to give the bottle and for how long per session do I attempt to try?
I'll only have her use a bottle while I am at work but will continue to breastfeed. However if she doesn't take to the bottle what so ever I won't be going to work. That's what happened with my first child I breastfed. Either I was misinformed or I gave up too easily. I don't know.
Any thing else I should know during the process please feel free to advise! Thanks
