Very very real.  The onset can be slow too.  Additionally flow preference is common to go with the confusion.

Never had problems with dd but with ds it has been a big problem. Each feeding I would have to teach him how. So it just depends on the baby. I wouldn't have given bottles at all if I didn't have to.

Very real. Not every baby gets it, and not every baby gets it at the same time, but it is a real thing. Be careful with early bottles mama.

 My son got bottles in NICU for the first 23 hours. I had an epidural headache so bad i could not get out of bed. All I did was cry because I only fed him one time. It was a nightmare to get him to latch. I was sore and cracked! Luckily I was adamant about bf and my friend came over to help.

I think confusion is a bad term. A better term would be preference for the easier food. Even I have that preference. :)

How did it turn out or how is it going now?  I wish they would use a syringe in that case : (

Confusion is for the latch I think, not just to bottles but pacis too

very real. if you want to be successful don't give bottles the first 3 to 6 weeks which can also mess with supply. goodluck

He is great now. Cord was around his neck very tight. It was a very scary birth! He was purple, they litteraly pulled him out of me after they cut the cord becasue he could not come down. There was no indication of any problems until they put the heart monitor on him and his heart rate was going down and not coming back up with contractions. He is almost 10 months and 20lbs 11oz, chunky little guy. funny thing is now that I am back at work he goes from bottle to breast just fine.
