25 Tips For Bottle Feeding Your Breastfed Baby
Has your baby only been breastfed so far in his short life?
Are you wondering how you’ll be able to incorporate bottle feeding once you go back to work?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. When my oldest child was 10 weeks old, I had to return to the workforce. It was heartbreaking, but I didn’t have a choice because my family needed the money.
I worried about how she would take to the bottle and if we would still be able to have our breastfeeding bonding time. Would she start to refuse the breast because bottle feeding was easier?
So I did what any slightly obsessed mom would do to stockpile information. I turned to my mom friends and the internet. I compiled a bunch of tips to help with my bottle feeding mission.
And you know what?
All the worry was for nothing. With the right information, I was able to switch her between the breast and bottle successfully.
It wasn’t easy, but it was doable. And as a side benefit, my husband was able to get more involved with the feedings. Here is everything that I learned…
