When is a good time to introduce the bottle? (I have read 5 weeks is a good time, if so, I need to start shopping/looking for bottles now)

Really anytime. We face Clara her first bottle around 3 weeks.

When you introduce the bottle, do you still breastfeed too? Like 50% bottle, 50% breast? Or is it a more gradual introduction to the bottle? Does any of that create nipple confusion?

I don't give bottles often. Clara has only had 3 bottles total. From now on, she'll only get bottles when at daycare and I'll nurse at home. Remember every time you give a bottle, you have to pump.

What brand of bottle is best for breast milk?

You have to find the one that works best with your baby. I use the Playtex Ventaire bottles with the wide nipples and they've worked well with both my daughters. Also remember to only use the slow flow nipples.

What brand of storage bags are good?

I use the Lansinoh brand
