  10. Should I just give up on the left breast?

  12. Re: Discouraged, in vicious cycle, help me stay with BF

    I am using the cradle hold for both sides. I have tried DD under the arm (football hold?) in the past but gave up when she kept struggling. The lumps and knots are on the underside of the breast...
  13. Re: Discouraged, in vicious cycle, help me stay with BF

    Oh and yes, my left breast (the one that's affected now) has been a problem for me on and off since I had DD. It tends to have more milk and get engorged more than the other side. DD doesn't latch...
  14. Re: Discouraged, in vicious cycle, help me stay with BF

    Re: Aggressive behavior at breast

    We had this last night! I have a 10 week old dd, and when she woke up at 1:30am to eat, she fussed and waved her arms around, pushing at me, clawing at me, grunting, etc. Then when I thought she'd...
