    If your GYN won't call in a prescription for you what about an after hours clinic? or some drug stores now have small clinics in the store?
    Doesn't it seem like these things always happen on the weekend?
    Can you pump too?
    Yes, even if it's a gymnastic feat try to position her chin or nose toward the lump. For future reference, if you have another busy day out and about when baby won't nurse enough, hand her off to hubby and go into the BR and hand expres.

    That helped me tremendously, it feels funny but works wonders!...Keep us posted plz!
