I have a 6 week old boy, who weighs 6.5kg (my 3rd). Finding it easier to express and give in a bottle thru the day and breast feed overnight. Has anyone tried this. I'm not having any issues BF but am struggling with the time it's taking, its quite hot, so uncomfortable for both of us & if we have people over someone else can give the bottle while I look after the other 2 children.
I was thinking of just giving the last 2 feeds of the day - so late afternoon & 10pm feed, if he is unsettled during that time I can always pop him on to settle him. Iv done it a few times & he seems to sleep better, but don't want to mess up my supply or have him not want to BF and only take the bottle.
Just thought I'd see if anyone else has tried this. I want him to have breast milk as long as possiable as I wasn't as successful with BF my other son.
