I'm looking into it as an option because for various reasons I am uncomfortable with breastfeeding but I do like the idea of giving them the colostrum and kind of slowing weaning to formula over about 4 months. I say slowly to be nicer to me as well as them because I tend to be an overproducer and weaning was hell last time but I do stil like the idea of giving them a little breast milk in the newborn period. If there is gaps in my supply I'm fine with using formula but I just feel like I want to try this to see if it works for us.
I have some questions on what supplies are needed for exclusive pumping? While I'm sure that for the first feeding we'll need to use formula,when would be a good time to initiate pumping during the hospital stay?
Any help would be appreciated thank you.
