Combining breast and bottle

For various reasons some mothers will combine breast and bottle feeding.

It is recommended to exclusively breast feed your baby until at least 6 months of age.

  • Wait for breastfeeding to become established, at least 6 – 8 weeks before introducing a bottle. This will help reduce the baby’s chances of developing nipple confusion or establishing a bottle preference.
  • When possible always offer the breast first for a feed, followed by the bottle if you are doing top up feeds.
  • Always express the same amount of breast milk your baby takes from a bottle to keep supply up.
  • If your baby is being bottle fed whilst you are out or working, make sure you express at feeding times to maintain your supply.
