    In most instances and in the lack of any other issues, breastfeeding a baby means they will be quiet and peaceful and allow you to concentrate on discussions with your psych so by all means take your baby and feed during the appointment if needed. Newborns can take a long time to feed as well. The text books usually say about an hour at a time but it could be shorter or if like my DD, it could be much longer.

    Well maybe you need to get your facts straight before you post stuff like that. Yes, babies have died in slings, when they are not used correctly. Babies have also died in their cots when they are not set up properly.
    Your comment was totally irrelevant and offers nothing to help the OP.

    I've taken bub to all my psych appointments. He is a bit older so entertaining him is getting hard but my therapist only works 2 days a week and I have no one to watch him those days. It would have been so much easier when he was a newborn and I could just put him on the boob.
    It's not usually a good idea to start giving bottles before breastfeeding is properly established because bub can get confused and it can affect your supply. You might also find that you stress even more about leaving him/her alone. At least take bub along to one appointment and see how you go, and as others have said maybe dad can come along and look after bub in the waiting room if you need help
