Re: Start breastfeeding at 6 weeks
Welcome! At just 6 weeks, I think you have an excellent chance of being able to restart breastfeeding. This is my favorite link on getting a baby back to the breast: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/. The instant reward and skin-to-skin techniques are supposed to be especially useful. Nipple shields are cheap, so it makes sense to try one. If it works, awesome. If not, well, at least it's not a super-expensive product.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
