here is a video demo of RPS (excuse the ad at the beginning)
it works by pushing back some of the fluid so that your areola softens enough for baby to get latched on.How would it help, by softening the areola so the pump would work better? Or should I hand express or nurse afterwards instead?
you will get through this. you have a strong commitment to making this work, and that is evident by the fact that you are still doing it after 7 very rough weeks.I hope I can get this worked out. I really don't want to give up breastfeeding. I would never forgive myself.
