I've been reading about breastfeeding lately and had no clue that it is recomended that you shouldn't introduce a bottle or a pacifier for the first month or so to avoid nipple confusion. What? I'd like to give breastfeeding a shot but would also like to pump so that Mike will be able to feed the baby with a bottle as well. I'm also not opposed to pacifiers so I planned to have those as well. If you breastfed, what was your experience with bottles and pacifiers? When did you introduce them? Was there any issues with nipple confusion? I know this is just me being new to all this but from what I remember with my sister and a few girlfriends that breastfed, they didn't wait a month to introduce these things. Am I just being a worry wort?
Your thoughts are appreciated!
