    That’s a very interesting topic! My baby is 9 weeks old and my mother-in-law’s been talking about me and my husband going out for the night… We struggled with breast feeding for the first two weeks after her birth, so I had to supplement with formula and later with breast milk from a bottle. My daughter has been exclusively breastfed ever since we overcame all those issues we had, to my relief and joy. Now, I would love to have a date night with my husband 🙂 but I really don’t want my baby to drink from a bottle just because I want to have a bit of fun outside of the house. Am I just too attached to her? 🙂 I would love to hear some opinions on that. I was thinking that maybe when she is three months old I can leave her for an evening with her grandparents. But I honestly don’t know. I just want to take her with me so that she can have my breast whenever she gets hungry. Looking forward to reading other posts!

    HI Linda — thanks for sharing — did your doctor say to steer clear of the bottle entirely for a while? I wonder if whether at a certain point you can begin doing just a few bottles here and there once the breastfeeding is established. If you know that this will not upset the breastfeeding, then I think you will be able to have date night in peace!! xoxo M
