Quoting sarah* sarah:" i am breast feeding my 14 day old son now and everything seems to be running smoothly but im thinking ... [snip!] ... that i had my own milk on supply"" i do understand but ................ please can someone give me some helpful advice?? thanks"
I tried pumping so that I could give him a bottle when I was out. unfortunately he had nipple confusion and had trouble latching on after that so he only gets it from the tap now. I did try to give him a bottle the other day but he wouldn't take it and took my boob straight away, so guess he just prefers it fresh.
As long as they're having breast milk your giving them the best start possible. Just make sure that you don't skip feeds, every time he has a bottle you need to express a bottle to replace it, so your body still produces enough milk.
