Re: Questions for those who DO NOT use bottles.....

Nursing is harder than drinking from a bottle. If I were a baby, I'd opt for less work!

That said, I wouldn't do it cold turkey. In your specific case, I would get an sns. I would pump after every feed and put that in the sns for the next feed. If she started getting fussy at the breast, I would start the sns and allow her to get what was in the sns as well as what she could manage at the breast. I suggest contacting an IBCLC or LLL leader for your specific situation since there are more factors than just deciding to skip bottles.
