Answer:
exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for first 6 months. Once you join office, you can express your milk, which can be later fed to your baby. Only if your milk is not sufficient you can start with top feed. Bottle feeding is not recommended as it poses hygiene issue and can cause nipple confusion. Use sterilised spoon and katori/bowl to feed the expressed/top feed.
