Just a vent...I remember feeling this way with DS, but it's even more so with DD because I want to be able to do more things with DS.
DD is 9 days old and I just feel stuck to the house because of breastfeeding. I'm still dealing with some cracked nipples and getting her to latch correctly each time, so it's still painful to initiate a feeding...but it's also the fact that I seriously leak anywhere between 1-3 ounces from the other breast during a letdown, and from the moment I bring baby to breast, that side starts a continual drip until she is latched, so I usually end up with a wet bra/shirt on that side too.
I do use nursing pads, and also bought a Milkies milk saver, but I am so afraid to leave the house in case she needs to nurse. DH has been on paternity leave, and has been doing everything with DS...but I miss my little boy, and I really really want to take him to mommy & me class tomorrow, I'm just dreading the whole messy/painful nursing situation.
The good thing is I know this too shall pass, and it's just a matter of getting through it one issue at a time. Thanks for "listening".
