I'm not due with my second baby until January, but I have some questions that I didn't ask the first time around.
Do you HAVE to use a breast pump to establish more supply when the baby is asleep or not eating at the time?
Is it normal for babies to lose 10 percent of their weight at 3 days old when you have started BFing? This happened to my son when he was a few days old, and nurses all seemed so concerned that it was so awful. They said it would be best if we supplemented with formula to get his weight back up. This scared me so much and made feel so guilty that it's the main reason I went to formula after we left the hospital. :/

I use one for I want DH to feed my son at times too, AND there are days I am out all day, so bottles are a MUST if I am not home. :) :) I don't pump everyday though. I just pump when I know a time is coming up where DH will be home with the kids for a while.
