My DS was born at 30+2, he's now almost 9 weeks old so almost at due date. I've been exclusively breastfeeding him since about 34 weeks and he's been home now for almost 5 weeks. Feeding is going well, but I'm starting to think about introducing a bottle of expressed milk (I have a tonne in the freezer) for one feed every other day or so to give me a bit of a break.
I've read that 6-8 weeks is the window for introducing a bottle and it not interfering with bf but I'm unsure if this 6-8 weeks relates to actual age or corrected age.
Has anyone else successfully introduced a bottle around this time? I want to be able to let DP give him a bottle every now and then to give me a little bit more freedom but I don't want to interrupt breastfeeding.
Can anyone help? I can't seem to find any information about when to best introduce a bottle to a prem baby, all the info I have found just covers feeding options from birth
