I am expecting baby #3 in a few weeks. My other 2 kids ages 6 and 3 years were formula fed. After 2 babies with colic, long nights, gastrointestinal issues, protein allergy diagnosis, I have decided that this baby will be BF. I am attending classes, and doing a lot of reading. I was afraid to do it in the past, because of 2 prior surgeries for fibrocystic breasts. I thought that all of the lumps I had removed, there would be no way that my milk ducts are still in tact. Anyway, no harm in trying.
Well, through all of the excitment, I was told by a family member that I would need to pump and bottle feed, because I will not be able to do anything else, and I would not be able to go anywhere. From what I have heard, I know moms who do both and it works (as long as it over 2 weeks when nipple confusion is not an issue). I am really wanting to do as little bottle feeding than I have to, but I may have to run out for errands sometimes (I am a SAHM). Is it possible to do the majority of baby on the breast and still go on outings?
