Re: Fighting the Boob, NEED HELP!
A shield might help, too. They come with risks, like slower milk transfer and reduced supply, but at this point I'd take that risk in order to keep the baby at the breast. If he's having trouble transferring milk with a shield, you could make up for that with the pump.
Sorry you are having such a rough time, mama! You're doing a great job, though. Really! I know it's hard to remember that in the moment, though.
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!"
