Can I just complain for a minute?
Ouch - my right nipple has a little sore spot from where DS was rubbing the wrong way, after I fell asleep and he was nursing. I just picked at it and now it's bleeding a little. That's fine, whatever. But as I'm pumping at work, that side is hurting too much to turn the pump all the way up. And if I don't turn the pump all the way up, I can't get enough milk out! I wish I could have one side be at a stronger setting than the other side! When I only pump one side at a time, it doesn't feel strong enough at all. I'm not sure if I should grin and bear the pain, or if I should lower the pump and not get all of the milk out! Ugh!
