all babies seem to have different preferences, so it's hard to say in advance which would work best for your little. In general, if you are both nursing and bottle feeding, it is recommended that you use a bottle with the slowest flow possible (start out with newborn flow). Some babies get used to the faster flow of bottles, get "lazy" and less willing to work for milk at the breast.

I'm going to echo tiredbuthappy here. "Every baby is different." One of my babies took a bottle of breast milk and wouldn't give it up until her 2nd bday (horrible I know) and my second would never take a bottle (even though I returned to work 1 wk PP, we finger fed in the beginning weeks and ended up cup feeding) Bottles honestly don't ever even have to be offered. If a baby needs supplemented (preferably w/ breast milk) it can be done via cup or spoon.

It sounds like you're a wonderful mother for making future plans.
