Re: Please help! At my wits end - Pumping hurts so much!!
Sorry you're having trouble, mama. Breastfeeding a newborn can certainly present challenges, but at 3 weeks it is definitely still possible to get that baby back to the breast. What problems were you having?
I agree with the pump shield not being the right size for you so I would have a look and see if you plan to continue pumping, if you can get a size that's more appropriate.
And I would talk to your midwife or doctor about the pain and fevers, ASAP. That is not a good sign. Fevers + engorgement definitely sounds like possible mastitis, and the sooner you deal with that the better.
