juniper is 8 months old and EBF. i am a nanny in my own home 3 days a week. it is becoming impossible to nurse her while the other baby is here, because my daughter requires lots of cuddles while nursing and gets distracted. so during the daytime, it takes 45 minutes all in all to get her to finally nurse. she only nurses twice a day while i nanny. i am feeling like i am neglecting this one year old that i get paid to watch. he is crawling everywhere, pulling himself up to walk... he needs supervised while i'm trying to coax juni into nursing.
so during these 3 days, i plan on giving her a bottle 2 times a day.
will she go to the breast easily after she gets a bottle? i am terrified she won't. i don't want to give up her other nursing sessions after he leaves for the day, and i want to nurse full time on my days off.
oh, a little background: i have a freezer with about 150 bags pumped milk, i do plan on pumping at naptime during "workdays" to maintain supply, and we were EPing the first 2 mos of her life. we have tomme tippy bottles and plan to use low flow nipples.
