exclusive breast feeding is recommended till 6 months. When you start going to office you may express your milk manually or with a breastpump and it cab be given to your baby while you are away. If you are producing sufficient milk, then you may not need to top feed your baby. Otherwise, you may start it now to habituate the baby. Replace only one of your breast feed with top feed initially. It is advisable to use a sterilised spoon and bowl instead of bottle. Bottle feeding is not recommended as it poses hygiene issues and create nipple confusion. Hope this helps.
