my dd is ebf and is addicted to her NUK pacifier. she is 7.5 months old and has taken ebm from a bottle only 3 times in her life so far. at this point I cannot get her to drink from a bottle anymore. I am a first time mom and I really thought ebf for the first year was going to be a bigger challenge than it has been so far. As your baby grows they become more efficient when they suck. BF really is easier than FF.
