Clearly from my siggy, this is a completely premature question. I'm still wondering though so here goes. Those of you that do extended BFing, how much of the time do you offer the breast and how often do you offer expressed BM?
I ask because I'm EBF. W has never had a bottle. I have a medela harmony (manual) pump that I hate. W will be 6 wks on Monday, and I've read that around 5 or 6 wks you should offer a bottle if you want them to take it. I realize a cup could be offered instead of a bottle. Should I do that? I enjoy BFing and I'm fine with it always being me who is the one to feed him.
When he's older, could a cup of BM still be introduced? But isn't one of the reasons to do extended BFing to have the comfort and closeness of the breast? I'm confused. Please explain how it works. TIA.
