Re: anyone never use a bottle for their baby?

just remember if you DO buy a breastpump, (medela harmony is my fave manual pump), DO NOT OPEN IT until you know you need it. They will not return it if the seal on the box has been broken. DS has never had a bottle either, but I HAVE needed to pump. he had an unexpected MRI, and had to be put under gen anesthetic. Had a nasty congestion thing, and I pumped b/c he was eating less and I was super full. Even if you don't feed bottles, it's nice to have a pump just in case (IMO)

As for the breast pump, I'm going to wait and see if I need to rebuy that too. I mean I can always manually express if I'm desparate right? It seemed so silly that I bought this breast pump and used it like 5 times.
