I've been breastfeeding for one year now!
We started out with the nipple shield and had a few other issues along the way, but we are doing a lot better now. I no longer need the nipple shield, and I am finally able to enjoy our bf sessions now. My son seems to REALLY enjoy our sessions. Ha, ha. I don't think we'll be stopping anytime soon.
However, I do have DQ (de quervain's tenosynovitis) which can be really painful. It is basically a problem with my wrists. It mainly comes from carrying around a heavy baby. I now have an Ergo which I use often to carry around my baby, and we nurse laying down at night. My questions is does anyone else have DQ or even heard of it? And, are there any other measures to decrease the pain?
