    An extra set of pumping pieces--or two extra sets! You feel like you will go insane pumping, washing, repeat. . . :yikes

    What is Great Ormond Street? a hospital? He is still there?

    So, he had never been nippled at all? no bottle? He has only had TPN? no one has attempted nippling him? non-nutritive nippling?

  5. Re: Learning to latch again at 7mths old

    To be honest, to me it sounds like normal (annoying! yes!) bigger baby behavior. They all seem to go through that trying to play, and not miss a single thing while they take your nipple with...

    Do you happen to know how much milk you're making? Do you have oversupply? Do you have a forceful letdown?

    Re: Nursing after surgery???
