Following on from the breast feeding thread, is it possible to have your things sterilised in hospital, such as a breast pump? The only way I successfully got any of my own milk to baby last time was via pump, mainly down to the fact my nips are flat. Do they allow hosptial staff to do this, or would they start being awkward trying to force me to breastfeed? -N.b. I will attempt bf'ing at home on my own, away from pressure of health care professionals, but I want to know if I can do this whilst in hospital.
