Re: DH Handling a Feeding
I hate disagreeing with Jenna- but I think you can potentially skip a feeding/pumping session if:
- You plan to incorporate the pumping and the nightly bottle into your routine every night (otherwise you might run into trouble with not having enough milk when you try to nurse instead of bottle-feeding)
- Your supply is very abundant (and if you only do single-sided feedings, it probably is)
- You're not prone to engorgement or plugged ducts
I do think it's typically easier to co-sleep and nurse than to try to skip feedings! If you go ahead with the bottle plan, just be cautious and be prepared to set it aside if it doesn't work for you.
