There was a lot of talk about nipple confusion, that pacifiers and bottles are a bad idea for the first month because your baby needs time to learn to be a good nurser. Plus all the technical aspects of latching and how to hold the baby. People have been breastfeeding for thousands of years right? Why does it seem so complicated? I really want to breastfeed but I'm feeling intimidated. I've always felt it didn't matter to me if the baby got a breast or the bottle as long as he was getting breastmilk, and since when can a pacifier "sabotage" nursing?
