Quoting Kyran's Mommy♥:" Well luckily this doctor is not the doctor I normally have. My normal pediatrician was the one who suggested ... [snip!] ... when I go to breastfeed him..it is seriously the cutest thing..and he loves it so much. It's the most comforting thing to him.."
Go with your gut. If you feel like you should be breastfeeding, then breastfeed. My son was EBF'd and had jaundice. His pedi said that in breastfed babies, they can be jaundiced for longer than FF babies, but as long as his numbers are going down, you're good.
There are so many benefits to breastfeeding, and I feel like it's too soon for BFing to be your solution.
