Hello - my DS is almost 8 weeks old and I will be going back to work when he is about 14 weeks old. I haven't yet introduced a bottle or pumped at all and now I am reading that perhaps I should have by now. He does take a paci.
We supplemeneted my first son right away (i had a previous breast reduction) but this time, my baby is gaining well so I have not needed to supplement. We are really enjoying our nursing relationship, so I have not bothered pumping yet. Am I waiting too long?
We are going to FL next week so I was going to try to pump once we got back when he is 10 weeks old. That will give us a good 4 weeks to work on me pumping (I hate to pump - I have a PIS but I am splurging on a Freestyle) and for the baby to get used to the bottle. Do you guys think this is enough time? I will not have to always pump as I work from home some days and some days my husband may be able to meet us for a lunchtime nursing session.
