Here are a few of my favorite things that I used most often with Colson during the first month.
1. Playtex Nursers. These have been lifesavers. Since I'm going back to work Colson will need to take a bottle. Finding one that doesn't give him a lot of gas has been a challenge. So far these have done wonders and he takes the nipple just fine and doesn't seem to have much of a problem going back and forth to the breast.
6. I have had great success with the Medula breast pump. It is fast and with a baby...that is key! I will be able to take it to work with me and can take it in the car since it has an adapter. Seriously love this!
7. I've heard horror stories of milk going bad and so I spend the extra money on good quality bags to store my breast milk in. I haven't had any issues with it freezing. I recommend these babies. :)
