Breastfeeding Concerns.

I am thinking about breastfeeding, but I was wondering if it would be a hassle when you have 2 toddlers on top of a newborn. Would formula just be easier?

pump that might make it a little easier and then you could always supplement with formula if you needed or wanted too

Honey trust me there is nothing easier than whipping out a boob and letting your baby have at it lol I used to feel sorry for moms that had to get up every two hrs and make formula. Now I am one of those moms lol

No no no exclusively pumping is entirely too time consuming and flat out HARD. I tried for a month and to really feed your baby the right way assuming you don't dry up, you have to pump like 13 times a day. Add that to your hungry new born, plus the two toddlers. I'd lose my mind.

Invest in a good wrap carrier or ring sling so you can nurse while having one or two hands free - that'll help a ton. Taking extra time to pump or mix formula - not to mention all those extra dishes - is exactly what you want to avoid with so many littles needing attention. Latch and go, that's the quick and easy way to do it.

The milk is at the perfect temperature and readily available at all times. Get a good rap or cover and it will be so much easier. I'm just curious to see how curious my son gets. My mom's nursed all 8 of us though.
