i have a 5 week old daughter who i plan to breastfeed for about a year, as i did with my other 2 children. My question is - can i give her the occasional bottle of formula? i understand that expressing is an option but at times when i don't have any stored or at short notice when expressed milk is not available? i am asking because having three kids under 4 it would be a huge help for me to be able to have someone give her a bottle and her dad do some night feeds (fingers crossed!).
