i breast feed as well and bottle feed him every once and a again and he hasn't lost his latch, it's actually easier sometimes when you're out and can't breastfeed right at that moment

I breast and bottle feed with no latching problems. I recommend getting a bottle designed for nursing babies.  I use MAM bottles they work really well for me.

I also started bottle feeding when he was 3 days old because he bruised my nipple really bad and needed to give my nipple a break now and then to heal.
