DH is fantastic, and does everything he can, but I do very much feel the pressure of not being able to take a 'sick day' in terms of BFing, like it's all on my shoulders.
Hoping to start expressing at least one feed of the day soon, but the midwife has scared DH by telling him that introducing a bottle might stop her taking the breast altogether.
Hope you start feeling better about everything soon.
We were afraid to introduce a bottle early too with fear of her not nursing. We waited 4 weeks and then she didn't want a bottle. She didn't take a bottle well for months. This time we introduced it around 2 weeks (he was BFing well) and he will even take it from me. It could just be their personalities, but I would think if BFing is going well to introduce the bottle if you plan on using them.
