Breastfedding baby transition to bottle
When is it a good time to teach her how to eat from the bottle? She's only a week old now, also how is the best way to teach her any tips? Really will take any advice, completely new to this.

Does she still breast feed as well? Was there any confusion? In just so nervous she's gonna get messed up and not wanna nurse. But I have a great storage and want her to take the bottle so daddy can feed her

Some babies have trouble but it seems that less do than one would think. My daughter does both breast and bottle and I started her on that at about two weeks (she's going on five weeks). I'm going back to work tomorrow and wanted her to be accustomed to both early on so it would be easier when I went back.

I had to go back and forth from bottle to boob. He does well w bith. There is a suckling reflex on the roof of the mouth. Makes sure she has her tongue down press the nipple to the roof of her mouth and she should catch on pretty quickly. I try to stick to bottles made for breast feeding babies but we have some w the thinner nipples and my lo still does fine going back and forth
