Babies Babies

How many bottles?

Posted by   + Show Post
Goodness...

Starting all over 15 years later and amazed at how much I've forgotten and just how much baby equipment has evolved!

I'm on amazon ordering glass bottles and realized I have no idea how many would be good to start with for a newborn... I don't mind doing dishes and sterilizing multiple times per day, I'll be staying home :)

And I'm exclusively pumping, so she'll be eating breast milk, I'm assuming every 2 hours or so in the beginning, so.....10 or so? If I want to get away with doing dishes once a day?

How many did you find was a good number without running out before you know it and being a slave to the sink lol

Definitely! Congrats btw :)

Quoting Nolanzo:

:) I wish I could. I have a blood-borne illness that makes a cracked nipple dangerous... And when I bf'ed my son my nipples bled constantly but I did not have the disease back then :)



So, after exhaustive research and a meeting with her ped and my lc, it has been decided this is the safest option for us :)



Luckily, I am a human of the bovine persuasion and I respond very well to a pump... It IS a heck of a lot more work than just bfig directly but I feel as though its worth it :)




Quoting bebe_ju-rah:

Why don't you plan to bf? Just curious...pumping seems like a lot of work!

We had 5 at the time we now have like 15 so we can get away with only using a couple a day our boy is 6 months old so he has like 3 to 4 actual bottles a day at the most

This is not my first child... I HAVE been through this before :)

Direct bf = bleeding nipples for me. Pumping = not a drop of blood. Not once.

Thank you for your input... I have decided that direct feeding is out of the question and I am more than happy to pump... :)


Quoting pinkiebabii:

Your nipples are more likely to crack pumping than if you nursed, unless she is born with a tongue tie, and you can have that clipped in the hospital before you leave.

keep in mind that every child and every experience is different, and what happened last time may not happen this time.   make sure to join the eping moms group for tips on eping to help keep it up.

Wow!!! Good for you, mama! I love your dedication!

I don't know about glass bottles. Can you check crunchy stores? I have a few in my area.
