My son is 3 days old today.
I thought my milk "arrived' because my boobs have been , heavy, huge, and ROCK HARD PAINFUL all day.
At the peditrician appt today it seemed my son has lost over a POUND, and in only 3 days?!
I cannot even get him latched on decently now that my boobs are huge painful bags of rocks, and I just attempted to pump to release pressure / avoid a clog / confirm milk... and I am getting a grand total of a teaspoon at best-- and no relief from the rocky pain. Son won't wake up and nurse either-- i know he is waiting for 11pm then will be up all night while I am falling asleep standing up.
This was a bit of a vent but I am already thinking WHY am I going down this road again (2nd baby here).. low supply and constant failure and depression (refuse to take meds while nursing).
