Our little girl was born at 1:35am on 1-1-11, the first birth in the area for 2011. Here is a pic: http://media.knoxnews.com/media/img/photos/2011/01/01/010111babyfirst_t300.jpg
She was 8lbs 7oz and 21 inches. We are smitten and thankful for an uncomplicated arrival.
Help me out here, Moms. She is comforted best by sucking, so of course I have her at the breast quite frequently.
Did any of you use pacifiers this early? I want to avoid nipple confusion, but I have a few of the Natursutten pacifiers that are shaped like actual nippples. My husband's finger works, but I am wondering if I am going to mess up our wonderful latching if I give her the pacifier.
Thoughts much appreciated!!
