If you’re thinking of giving your baby a bottle in the future, it’s good to know when to start and how it might affect your breast milk.
Most experts – doctors, healthcare professionals and moms – suggest waiting a month before introducing a bottle. This is to make sure your milk supply and breastfeeding routines are well established.
Your body reacts to how much your baby drinks – making more milk if she’s hungry, and less if her appetite decreases. This means any drop in breastfeeding, or expressing times, can reduce the amount of milk your body produces.
