My lil one is 3 weeks and I will be going back to work in about one month which means he will need a bottle. I bought one tommee tippee (however you spell it) because I done want a bunch of bottles laying around and I really done want to use it unless I have to, like while I'm at work. I don't even want to use that one.
But my question is, is when should I start pumping and how much should I pump? I work Friday-sunday12he shifts. How soon before I work should I introduce the bottle and how often should I give it to him? I LOVE bf and don't want anything to go wrong so a little advice would be nice. Thanks!
You'll need more than one bottle, unless LO is only going to be having one feed while you're at work! For a 12hr shift your baby will need to be fed at least 4 times in that period so 4 bottles would be best otherwise whoever is looking after the baby is going to be constantly washing and drying all day!
