Hi all, I have an 11 day old baby and I am EBF. The last 3 nights he has spent hours and hours attached feeding from maybe 8 pm until 4 or 5 am and I'm exhausted.

Would it be ok to express a little throughout the day and give this as a bottle late at night to try settle him if he has a full belly

I have no idea OP, but thought you needed a bump.
Although your bump will have gone now grin

Yes. Don't worry if you are not able to express much initially though. Keep at it and in time you will get more and more.
