    LOL, that funny about the co-sleeping...with DD1 my husband hated that I was so-sleeping with her and would not sleep in the bed if she was for fear that he would roll on her. With these guys, hes not so opposed...maybe because they would actually sleep that way!

    I can't offer much help, but I can say I kinda feel your pain. Just in the not producing enough though. I replied to say nipple confusion doesn't always happen. I feel like bf was major pressured in the hospital, but nobody really had time to help me, so we ended up bottle feeding with me pumping. At home I started bf a little bit...but then my pump broke. I was on a bf binge as I called it. Somebody bf each feeding. I still try to do that even though I have a new pump. The only problem I had was with Zach who was too frantic a few weeks ago. Now, all three bf if the option is given to them, but they also are more than willing to take a bottle. And they take paci's (but only like the ones from the hospital). So, I hope that helps you believe that nipple confusion doesn't always happen. Either that or my kiddos are WAY confused! LOL

    I second Steph, nipple confusion does not always happen. I bottle fed somewhat with my dd, because of her weight loss the ped said to give a formula bottle after every other feed, so we did that for 2mo, and then when she was 4mo I went back to work part time, so dh gave her 1 bottle each night when I was gone, and she never had problems.

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.

    Yay! We also used swaddle blankets (by Halo or Summer Infant). I cannot say enough good things about those things. Awesome inventions!

    Ditto this... my kids had no nipple confusion either, be it bottle or nuks of various brands. They simply wanted to eat and weren't picky with how it was given! I didn't produce enough at all even with medication to stimulate. They had to be supplemented as well. One thing that helped me feel better was knowing approximately how much I was producing (only 1-2 oz per feeding - not much at all) when they were at 4-6 oz. at a couple weeks old. We were all happier when I knew it wasn't for my lack of trying and knowing they were fed and satisfied. So what I did was I nursed first and then supplemented in the same feedings. Win-win!
