    Breastfed babies...

    Advertisements
    Did you give your breastfed baby a pacifier?
    How old was him/her?

    Did you suplement bottle feeding with your milk in it? at what age? I'm a little afraid of doing this and screwing up my milk. I would only do this so dh get the chance to experience feeding him too.

    Im pumping so DH can get a chance to feed him too. If thats your reason for supplementing I would definitely recommend a pump.

    I gave Carter a pacifier almost right away, he really likes the "soothie" pacifier.

    both my kiddos got binkies and were BF and we did do some supplimenting with both and they both took a bottle...I just read an article to do it before 4 weeks bc then it's an easier transition.....and there isn't nipple confusion

    Yes. We did give him a pacifier. The Avent ones, rather than orthodontic ones because we felt they looked more like my nipple, LOL. And they also had more age sizes than others.
    And we gave him his first bottle of expressed milk at 3 days old. I always pumped whenever my husband gave him a bottle though, so that my body would realise he was having a feeding. It worked out really well for us

    With #3, yes. From day 1. The other two wouldn't take a paci at all. No problems with nursing at all.
    Needs work.

    Haven't used a pacifer with any of them yet, they just didn't want one.

    The first bottle around 3 weeks, if they had any trouble with nursing the next feeding then not again till about 6 weeks otherwise they were good to go. I second pumping while they are getting a bottle if possible, if not them remember to throw in an extra time of pumping so your supply isn't messed up at all.

    Bella would not take a paci at all. I bought so many different kinds and nothing.

    As for bottles the only kind she would /will take is the breastflow bottles.

    I found this. It's kind of long, but it might help.
