Hi there, I'm just visiting from the second trimester boards as my LO isn't born yet, and I have searched all over the parenting/breastfeeding boards but not finding the answers to my particular questions (send me a link if I'm wrong and I'll check it out)!
So, I've seen many mothers talking about breast feeding and maybe pumping for the nighttime feeds so other people (DH/mothers/etc) can help out. But when I mentioned this to my mother she said never would that ever work as the baby would be extremely confused and probably refuse to breastfeed altogether. Now she is very ''my way or the highway" and when I try to do things my way she says she would know better and gets mad that I'm not listening to her. ANYWAYS, this is now 2015 and I'm sure the bottles they make now are very similar to our breasts and was wondering:
If you pump and also breastfeed what bottles do you use?
At what stage should I introduce the bottle (couple weeks maybe after breastfeeding is working well)?
And does it cause a lot of confusion for your LO ?
I'm aware breastfeeding might he thrown out the window altogether after birth as many things do happen, but I'm going to give it my best shot and just want to be prepared.
Thanks in advance !
