Im thinking of introducing a bottle to 13week old (2 week corrected)premature baby.......which formula would you advice to use and any tips for introducing a FF. I want to continue with some BF but would like to introduce a bottle for my own sanity.....

Any first stage milk is suitable. Choose a time when your baby isn't desperately hungry, and maybe have someone else offer the bottle (breastfed babies sometimes won't accept bottles from their mothers). You might have to experiment with type of formula/bottle/milk temperature etc.

Why not use EBM? Means it's only the bottle that is different, not the milk too.
