I have a 2.5 year old daughter and an 11 month old daughter, both were breastfed for 2 weeks. I struggled tremendously because I have inverted nipples. Even the lactation nurse I was working with during both times wasn't quite sure what to do to help me. We tried everything, changing positions, breast shells, breast shields, pumping, ice cubes(!!). My DH and I are considering having another baby and the thought of what to do with feeding has come into my mind. I would so love to breastfeed if we did have another baby but know it would likely end the same way the other times did. I've been thinking a lot on the idea of exclusive pumping. I'm trying to learn about it, how to do it, what to expect, etc. I was wondering if any exclusively pumping moms out there could tell me about their experiences with it, why they chose it, how they feel about it, etc. Basically anything! For those who do exclusively pump, did you start immedieatly after birth or did you attempt at the breast feeding first?
