    Hey all. I’m a new, first time, mom trying to breastfeed. Mackenzie is 2 weeks and 2 days old today. I may just be impatient but it’s not going well. I am mostly bottle feeding her breast milk.

    NEED ADVICE — Anyone use a pacifire. My daughter will be 3 weeks old on Wednesday and my husband and family are quick to give her a pacifire if she’s fussy (after we’ve check everything else). I don’t like using it b/c I don’t want her to rely on it and more importantly I don’t want to have problems breastfeeding. They just keep telling me…[Read more]
