Okay im due next april YAY! lol i am going to BF exclusively. I never done it with my other two kids but i did pump BM for my second daughter. My husband will want to hold the baby and feed him but he knows i am BF. Is it a bad thing for me to bottle feed him a few times? If not then what is the best glass bottle that is closest to a nipple? Also, we have a two bedroom apartment. my daughters sleep in there room that has two toddler beds, a dresser and night stand. I dont know if we should spend money on a new crib and put it there but i dont think i should. i would like to co sleep and i have a new bassinet in my room already and set to go. My mom says i need one but i dont know. the rooms are far apart and i dont want the baby waking up my other kids and i dont want to wake up half asleep hittingAnswer Question

For the first 4-6 weeks after birth, it is recommended to not offer a bottle or pacifier to a baby so yo don't risk the chance of "nipple confusion." After that, if you want to pump, and TRY to have someone else( This is the key to success) offer baby a bottle, they YES by all mean go for it. As for the crib goes, I personally got my daughter one before she was born, and she has NEVER slept one single night in it. When she first came home, she slept in a bassinet right next to me, and I would wake up , feel her, then lay her back in the bassinet. I finally got "smart" LOL and at 5 months, started co-sleeping. She is 15 months, and only BF before naps and bedtime now, and is still co-sleeping with my husband and I. Good luck with whatever you choose. I recommend joining the breastfeeding moms group. The advice from those ladies can be a lifesaver!! Congratulations and best wishes!!!
