DD is 6 weeks old and EBF. I've pumped some when she won't nurse on one side, etc, so I have a small stash built up. I don't work much, but I will be going back weekends so she needs to be able to take a bottle. My worry is my history with my boys. Neither of my boys ever nursed well and I ended up exclusively pumping for both of them by about 4 months and then finally gave up by 6 months (supply issues, etc). So my question is, when is the right time to try a bottle? I know it's a fine line. I really want to continue to mostly BF, but want her to take a bottle for when I work or if she is ever with my mom. Oh, btw, I won't be going back to work until Memorial Day so we still have a month. I also don't want to get to the point where she refuses a bottle. Anybody have suggestions/experiences?
