James is a week old now and we're having a great time breast feeding. He's latching on great and minus him being a bit of a piggy and over doing it sometimes we're doing fine. However, when it comes to changing him, he screams the place down, and as soon as he's back in his clothes he's fine. It doesn't really bother me because I know he's just twisting for no reason, and he's calm again once he's dressed so I know he's ok, he just doesn't like to be naked! Trouble is my partner suffers from epilepsy in his sleep so I do all the changes at night as if he doesn't get good sleep it brings on fits.
I was thinking of introducing a dummie during changes, especially at night, to try to soothe him so he doesn't wake up my other half, who will also be returning to work next week, but I don't want it to mess up his feeding as we're doing so well.
Does anyone have any experience with dummies and breast feeding? Is he too young for a dummie yet? Any advice would be great, I plan on asking my midwife when I next see her but I was just curious if anyone had any real experience on this. Thanks xx
