Re: How to FF at hospital after birth?

Just to add--I know several women who had to return to work within a few weeks of birth and chose not to BF for that reason. Colostrum on a bottle nipple or pacifier worked for all of them and expressing it did not cause their milk to come in. Breasts are really pretty supply and demand; if you don't regularly put the baby to your breast or pump, it's not likely you will have enough in there to be uncomfortable.
