bottle feeding breast milk

  • I'm having my first child in august and i am considering giving my baby both formula and breast milk, however i want to feed it breast milk from a bottle...is there a difference with the type o  bottle i use? I have seen nursing bottles and regular bottles, but can i use regular bottles for both formula and breast milk?

  • Jennie_253,

    Bottles are made to fit the baby and not the type of food that you put in it, so you sure can feed your baby formula and breast milk in the same type of bottle.

    Great question!

  • Nope - same bottle for both!! Consider calling your insurance company to find out if they cover a pump rental/purchase. They are covering them more and more! If you use WIC, they also can help you out with a pump rental. Hope this helps. :-)
