Quoting Rydicule91:" When did you introduce bottles to your LO while you breastfeeding? I have been EBF for over 3 weeks and ... [snip!] ... him bottles for when we go visit family over the holidays. He took it once and the next time I tried he wanted the boob. Tips?"
4-6 weeks is the earliest is what is recommended by LCs and no sooner. The reasoning being; the sooner a bottle is introduced the higher the chance that your little one will get nipple confusion which makes breastfeeding really hard.
If you have to give a bottle try these:
^Its AMAZING. It has a nipple in a nipple so the milk comes out like the breast(mimicking the let down reflux so they don't get impatient when you latch them back on you) and it forces the baby to open his mouth really wide and suck like he would on the breast(reducing pinching when you go to latch him). Plus the nipple isn't creepily long like on bottles lol. It is just a lot closer to the real thing. I had to use em because my son had latching issues for 3 months and they actually helped him latch
Here is a close up of the awesome nipple:
Best bottle ever in my opinion.
