My name is Jackie I am a 26 year old mother of twin boys who are 5 and I am expecting a singleton in 23 days! I have some questions about breast feeding even though I did it with my twins. It has been a while so I need to refresh some!
I was told it is bad to use a binky while breastfeeding but my boys were in NICU for 3 weeks and they had binky and bottle and were still able to latch on once I brought them home. I know all babies are different though. I want to use a binky also because I feel it might help reduce the risk of SIDS at least for the first 6 months I would like too.
I never used nipple sheilds but does it still hurt at first if I would and would that cause nipple confusion for the baby? I am having a repeat c section and I worry I may be to out of it at first to feed the baby so I packed a bottle for the baby for SO to be able to feed the baby if needed is that ok or would that risk comfusion as well?
I am only producing clear liquid I thought colostrum was a dark yellow? I think I have something starting in the right boob when I squeeze it lol but nothing in the left.
Please help ladies!!! I am very excited and hope I can do it for longer tha n3 months which is how long I was able to make it with my twins before I succumb to formula because my twins needed iron supplements so it made it hard to stick with BF.
