Dr. Murray, a pediatric emergency physician and American Academy of Pediatrics Spokesperson, is an advocate for practical parenting; pumping breastmilk and using a bottle, she says, can help babies who have difficulty latching or sucking — it’s nothing to be ashamed of. But parents also need to remember to practice common-sense safety, especially during night feeds. Falling asleep with the baby seems cute, but it’s actually quite dangerous and can raise the risk of SIDS. “Just because you’re bottle feeding doesn’t mean you aren’t going to be exhausted as a parent,” she warns. “I always recommend that someone set a timer when they’re feeding at night. Exhausted parents can still fall asleep if they’re sitting in a comfortable chair, or sitting in their bed holding a baby, just like with breastfeeding.”
