I posted the following on another board, not even realizing that this board was here... I am just now catching on to the idea that my son and I may be struggling with OALD and I'm just PRAYING for relief from the horrible nursing sessions we have, I hate to see him cry so much. Please help if you can!
How would you block feed when only one side has OALD? I'm afraid of losing the supply on the other side. Milk shoots out during and a little after let down on my right side but never on my left. I thought about pumping my left side during the time that I'm using the right side only, but pumping or BF on my left side always makes my right side let down... Is that okay? Also, I think my baby now HATES breastfeeding because of dealing with the OALD, what are some ways to improve our breastfeeding relationship? Thanks!
