rnlMusings: Baby Week: What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag

    I breastfed and used a soother. My son loved both. Oh, and he loved formula too. He loved it all. And YES bring those granny panties...Better than those bizarre mesh ones they give you at the hospital...

    I agree with Jesse. It's not wrong to use a soothie/pacifier. My daughter uses it (19 months) and she's fine. And she was breastfed. Granny panties? YES. I agree with all of it. We were so unprepared the first time.

    It doesn't cause nipple confusion. My daughter used it from like 3 weeks.

  • Karissa Kelso

    Wow. That was really rude, I'm sorry if my comment came off rude, but I meant that each child is different. And if I had used a bottle, that would have been my choice. Who are you to judge anyone on the choices they made with their child? Even if you were a lactation consultant you'd still be a judgemental idiot. I actually have educated myself, and while yes, paci's MAY cause nipple confusion, it doesn't happen to ALL kids. That's like saying because one person got the flu from the flu shot EVERYONE is going to. No. Not everyone does. Educate myself? Honey, I am educated. You need to practice what you preach, you righteous judgemental idiot. People have to make certain decisions because of different circumstances.

    I've worked with hundreds of babies in a hospital setting and have yet to see any of them have "nipple confusion." Yah, it can keep parents who don't understand breastfeeding from putting a baby to breast as much as they require, but it certainly won't prevent them from eating.
