I know there is another "introducing the bottle" post below, but I promise this one is asking some slightly different questions.
I want to introduce a bottle for LO in case we are ever out or I am sick or DH wants to feed her. I understand that I will need to pump for every bottle feeding to keep my supply consistent, and we did not want to make this a daily thing. My issue is that my DD had latch issues for weeks and at about six weeks old just because more efficient with BFing. We still struggle sometimes. I was terrified (and discouraged by my LC) to give her a bottle to supplement her when she was having weight gain issues, but now that she is almost two months old, I wonder if she is ready. Or did I wait too long? The last thing I want is for me to offer her the bottle and she prefers it to the breast and never goes back, so if that is a real risk, I would rather just breastfeed. But if it is possible to get her to take a bottle every once in a while, what would you suggest? Are there any bottles that really mimic the breast well so she will not notice that the bottle is so much easier?
