If the baby is to get milk other than breastmilk, it needs to be artificial baby milk (infant formula) until the baby is at least 9 months of age
But getting the baby to take a bottle surely won't hurt
Babies need to drink milk when the mother is not at home
Followup formulas (artificial milk for infants over 6 months of age) are specially adapted to the needs of infants 6 to 12 months of age
