Hi ladies! My newborn is 5 weeks now, and I wanted to think about pumping so dad can have some feeding bonding, and I can have a tad bit of freedom. Can anyone suggest how to begin this process, how much to pump, when, etc.?
Also, is it ok to introduce a pacifier when she is comfort nursing and dad wants to hold her? If she's just flutter feeding and I hand her over in REM, she wakes up and starts whimpering and licking her lips - sometimes she'll settle down, other times she'll get more upset, but if he hands her back, she'll continue to flutter feed.
