Hello - I am a proud new mom of a full term baby boy. My son is now 5 days old and has been solely nursing. So far he's been doing very well - my milk supply has come in, he has a strong latch, and mustardy stools.
Now my dilemma - He is currently nursing every 1 1/2 to 2 hours and has about one 3 hour stretch during the night followed by cluster feeding sessions. He is scheduled for circumcision this coming Tuesday. He will be 1 week old and we've been advised no feeding one hour prior to appointment time. He gets very fussy and cries if he's not fed immediately. Should I start pumping and have a bottle ready for him after the procedure? (this is what a family member suggested, however I am also coping with many who are hesitantly supporting our decision to offer breast only).
Your help/advice is greatly appreciated!
