Yes, do give her mother feed as much as possible. Because, that will give her immunity against diseases in future too. Also, having mother feed will make her more attached to you. How long will be your maternity leave? Try to give her mother feed alone for atleast 3 to 6 months. Start formulas after that. How about using a pump? You can pump out your milk, refrigerate it and then ask her caretaker to feed her. Most of the infections come from bottle feeds and not from mother feed. So try staying home and feed her as much as possible, as it will make her strong and healthy after she grows up.
