    Yup, flow preference! My DS had this as well. Judging from the posts on this board is is much more of a problem than "nipple confusion".

    And try not to look at "using me as a pacifier" as a bad thing. Getting your baby to sleep in 10 minutes by simply nursing her is one of the great benefits of breastfeeding. Any other method to get...

    Re: Not pumping enough

    The type of pump you use can also make a big difference. The women who pump 8-10 ounces (it's quite rare - 2 ounces is much more common) are probably using hospital grade pumps (they can be rented)....

    Re: baby cries and pulls away at night

    Hi,

    There are lots of reasons for babies fussing during nursing, but if it is only at night it might be what's called "flow preference". This often happens with my son if he gets a bottle of ebm...
