Yes but ask: Generally it is ok to use binders but I would first ask your surgeon.

What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?
Efficency: It's more efficient to breast feed than to pump & then bottle feed. You also avoid any risk of less than perfectly sterile bottles causing the milk to carry an infection.

That said, having breast fed both my kids, pumping when i was away & nursing when i was with baby was a very effective compromise. ...Read more
Breast Aug concerns: You can discuss this with your plastic surgeon during your consultation to see if s/he has concerns. On the surface, i don't think that it should pose a significant problem.

Don't be in a hurry!: The simplest, most natural way to wean is when your child initiates the process, usually around when solids are started. But if you're ready and they're not, try slowly tapering the number of nursing sessions every two or three days by replacing a nursing session with an alternative meal from a bottle/sippy cup/other foods (if ready). With luck, she'll be too busy with new experiences to notice! ...Read more
