Re: Confused, need help pleaseee :)
with the advice so far. Mama, I know it has to be hard to come here and get told the same thing over and over- put the baby to the breast, step away from the pump, stop the bottles, throw out the formula- but you have the potential to nurse this baby successfully, and we want you to have that success! I know right now it may seem very overwhelming to try to nurse, when bottles and pumping seem so much easier and more predictable. The problem with puping and bottle-feeding isn't in the early weeks, when it can really be easier than nursing. It's in the future. Babies aren't newborn forever. Before you know it, you're going to face the situation that EP moms always run into- care for the baby or keep your pumping routine? As aprilsmagic said, a day will come when your baby is mobile and is doing something you need to attend, yet if you don't pump you're going to run low on milk. We don't want that for you!
