I am a planner, so I'm looking for advice. My first child wouldn't take a bottle because I waited too long to try to introduce. I honestly couldn't go anywhere for a long time (and I nursed her until she was 12 months).
I am all about nursing my son on demand, but I'd also like to have date nights with my husband or be able to run to the store without freaking out b/c baby will be hungry before I get home.
My newborn son will be a month old this week. I plan to pump only once or twice a day to have enough in case my husband and I need to be out or in case I am out too long and baby needs to eat and person with him needs to feed him.
I plan to pump at the times that I miss a feeding. I plan to pump after I feed him to get some 'inventory.'
Does anyone have any other suggestions for
2. using the bottle
3. avoiding nipple confusion
4. time of day to introduce bottle
5. suggestions for husband who will be first to introduce
Thanks! I want to do the nursing for as long as I can.
