I wasn't really concerned about feeding in the pediatrician's office, moreso with the errands we had after, because I fed him right before we left.



Anyway we made it ok and didn't have to use the bottle, he slept the whole time.. and I appreciate the input but in a few weeks he will have to be introduced to the bottle anyway because I'll be going back to work so I won't be able to exclusively breast feed him without help from pumping and bottles.

Besides, every child is different as far as the n****e confusion goes . My son was getting bottles from day one due to being in the nicu and I was too sick to show up and nurse on demand. He never had an issue with n****e confusion and I didnt even get to put him to breast until a few days after he was born....that kiddo just wanted to eat. Gald it worked out for you. I am like you in that I am not comfortable nursing in public areas. I dont like the feeling of being exposed. Everyone is different.

I'm glad your day went great! Maybe your baby will be lucky and not have any n****e confusion. It's probably not a bad idea to get your body used to the pump if you'll be relying in it soon. Good luck on your nursing journey :)
