Now looking back, there are actually 2 things I was glad I did:

1. We had a painful beginning, and I started having DH gave LO bottles while I exclusively pumped when LO was a week old. At our 1 week well visit, our pediatrician persuaded me to put LO back to the breast exclusively because if I continued to pump exclusively, my supply would start declining as the pump is never as effective as the baby. He was right.

2. We had a 3-hour (!) in-home appointment with an IBCLC when LO was 1 week old. That made a HUGE difference.

These are the 2 things that made breastfeeding possible at all for us! What about you?
