I was a little reluctant to introduce a bottle this early for fear of nipple confusion. We have had so many bumps in the road with nursing that I didn't want to add one more thing to the mix. Unfortunately I was in so much pain from the thrush last weekend that I could only feed him on one side and pump the other side. So we decided to try out a bottle.
My stress was very quickly diminished when he took the bottle like a champ and got back on the breast with no problem at all!
