True- not every child will have an issue with nipple confusion. But it is a very REAL issue that destroys breastfeeding relationships.

It took us almost a month with a live in PP doula who was a lactation specialist got get my DD on my breast after the D#*M NICU refused to let me BF. She was so frustrated poor thing...I actually considered EPing because she was so stessed out about not getting enough fast enough.

I don't know if I would call it nipple confusion, so much as bottle preferance though.

to all the moms who have dealt with that.

I agree- nipple "confusion" is not the best term.

Nipple preference is a bit better.

Comes down to anything but breast in the mouth CAN screw up breastfeeding relationships. Doesn't always, but definitely CAN.
