I breast fed all my kids and other people fed them as well. Thats the purpose of the breast pump. Trust me babies take up lots of time and mom will be more then willing to except help :)

She bought the breast pump. She can pump out milk and put it in a bottle and you can feed the baby. Babies are fairly durable. It takes a little while to get ahang of holding a baby but I'm sure once you see your babies face all your doubt and worry will fade away and all you will feel is love.

You can find out the sex of the baby around 20 weeks is what my OB recommends. You can find out as early as 16 weeks but they make you wait i think due to sometimes due dates are off.

I think you both need to read the book what to expect when your expecting and what to expect the first year. It has a lot of great info for both of you

Baby shouldn't have a bottle for at least 6 weeks, but seriously it's not your job to feed the baby and there are plenty of other ways for dad to bond with baby other than feeding. Baby needs mom to breastfeed them, and mom and baby need you to support her. Do a little research on breastfeeding and you will discover that it's not just nutritional benefits it's also emotional ones. Daddy feeding them from a bottle doesn't give them those important emotional benefits.
You can help best by changing the baby, helping put them to sleep, and playing with them while your fiance gets a shower or eats something.

if she has a pump she can pump you a bottle and you can help feed too, that way momma can get rest, my SO would feed my LO 1-2 a night and just let me rest :)
