Quoting Man. Bear. Pig.:" I really hope so. I felt guilty and wanted to BF after she was born, but she wouldnt nurse, maybe because she was used to the bottle?"
Giving the baby a bottle can ruin bfing. It did for my daughter. They didn't even ask me, they just fed her a bottle and then she wouldn't nurse. We tried for two weeks and she'd fight me every step of the way.
Tell them NOT to give the baby a bottle at birth. Even if they don't want to nurse right away. They will try when they get hungry. Don't let them push you saying they NEED formula. My son barely ate the first day or two of life because he was exhausted from birth.
