Postpartum doula & certified breastfeeding educator, mama to an amazing girl (11/05) and a wee little boy (3/13).
I had a well intentioned nurse and doctor both tell me that if a newborn nurses for longer than 10 minutes per breast, they are "just using you as a pacifier". Seriosly, a nurse told me this when my DS was 2 days old!! No wonder so many women have supply issues when advice like that is given out by breastfeeding "supporters".
My DS rarely cried as a baby, if he started to fuss it almost always meant he wanted to nurse and then he quieted right down when I nursed him. Let's see, what would I rather have, a quiet, happy, nursing baby, or a crying baby who is supposedly being taught some "lesson" about self control?
