Breastfeeding mummies

Any mummies doing mixed feeding would like to share their experience if they are still able to breastfeed till LO is 1 yo by using bottle teats which are say for 6 months and above? As I understand that if I use bottle teats which are faster flow (increase with age), LO might not want to be breastfed anymore as the flow is slower. My LO used to be breastfed but now bottle feeding and I tried to breastfeed back but he doesn't want due to bottle having faster flow..as he is growing, I wondered if I should change to a faster flow teat (now still using 0m+) and still able to breastfeed him? Would like to try bf him back but mixed feeding. TIA!

If you wish to do mixed feeding, try to stick to the slowest flow teat for as long as possible. Unless LO fusses over the speed, try not to change up the level. Sometimes LO fussing over the bottle could be due to other reasons too, eg. Baby is not hungry or too tired. My 32mo is still on Dr Brown's 6mo+ teats and we are doing mixed feeding.

I bottle feed during the day and latch at night. It doesn't matter about the teats. I had one period where my baby on bottle strike doesn't want any bottle I change brand and teats useless. Actually the milk flow whether it's 6 month or 9 month doesn't matter eventually baby would still prefers bf than bottle.
