Those of you who breastfed, did you still get bottles/breast pumps/sterilisers? Anyone got on completely without? Did you express - on what occasions and how often? Did you give your baby formula as well and why/on what occasions?
Also, do you absolutely need a steriliser, or can you somehow get by without?
Hi I bought a bottle and a couple of cartons of ready made formula just in case. Which was a great thing as I had an emcs and my milk took 5 days to come in cue v v sore nips! ! But after that I breastfed solely for 6 months, dd wouldn't take a bottle later and I couldn't express. The pump went back to boots as did the steriliser! ! But on the plus side now weaned she does finally take a bottle! ! X
