Nothing's off topic, Meg! I'm currently on a homeopathic remedy for it and I have some lube, etc. For me, it's more psychological, like, I never had to use anything before...hrrumph! For the last 6 days, I have not nursed during the day (son hasn't even asked for it, so it was a natural progression) and I nurse 1-2x in the middle of the night (when he screams bloody murder) but it is getting easier to get him back to sleep with just some pats on the back. I sure hope these changes get something started here! And I'm so thankful he is weaning himself so I feel less guilty.
