Re: my milk has gone away!
i agree with all the advice yo u've been given here, just wanted to chime in on this: you really SHOULDN"T be "trying to get her to last". remember boobs are not bottles; they continually fill, and the way to get them to fill more is by emptying them more. getting babies to wait between feeds so there's more milk when they eat DOES NOT WORK, in fact, tells your body to make LESS milk. so just keep putting her to the breast, switching sides, nurse whenever she seems to want it or is unhappy for ANY reason, even if it's been just 5 mins since she last nursed.
