maybe i missed this but are your nipples inverted? maybe just pump to get the nipple out and tug on it while you get ready to take the baby on your lab. pumping and holding a baby is tough.
i just wanted to say that i told a nurse to get out of my room when she started bossing me around about the nursing... she actually said "Are you asking me to leave????" I said, YES, PLEASE GO! she was very annoyed with me
increasing is good
