Getting BF baby to take a bottle

Any amazing tips? Everyone keeps pushing me to continue breastfeeding but it’s soooooo draining not being able to even express breast milk and leave her with her dad whilst I have a bath! She feeds every hour!! I’m exhausted and at the end of my tether!!

My seven-week DD switches between Minbie bottles and the breast with no issues. But we had introduced it early, around the three week mark as we had latching issues (that thankfully are resolved now).

I tried multiple bottles, got different people to feed him with me not in the room etc as per all the recommendations but my first flat refused the bottle, I think I got him to take a couple of ounces about 3 times from a Mam bottle (I started trying at 3weeks) when made a diffence to my sanity was a dummy as sometimes he just needed to suck for comfort and not actually feed. Might be worth a try?

Latex teats instead of silicone

Also interested in tips. Planning on bf when baby arrives late June/early July, however we have weddings at end of Aug & end of Sept which we would like to attend so need to get her used to the bottle ASAP.
How early did you all start?
