Even when you plan to be a stay at home mum and exclusive breastfeed your baby, you may discover that allowing other members of the family to feed your baby a bottle of pumped breast milk will do both you and your baby a lot of good.

You can obtain a few of each type or decide to buy the large size from the beginning and be putting only the amount of feed that your baby needs for the first few months. Normally, newborns eat only about one ounce or two every meal, while babies roughly six months old may eat six to eight for each meal.
Bottles normally contain at least four essential parts: the bottle, the nipple that mimics the woman’s nipple, the collar for screwing the nipple in place and a nipple cover for travel.
