Welcome and congratulations on your baby!!
I'd like to add another voice in agreement with all of the above advice. There are plenty of ways to bond with a baby that don't involve introducing a slippery slope that might lead to early weaning. Shame on those nurses - what poor (and inaccurate) advice. Just so you know, nurses aren't experts in human lactation. Lactation consultants are. In fact, you can bank on the advice of an LC above that of basically any other health care professional when it comes to breastfeeding. And any LC would tell you pretty much exactly what you've read, above
Good job on the nursing so far!!
