My LO will be 6 mos old in the next 4 days. I've been pumping and working for the last 2 mos just fine. However over the last few days my nipples have become very painful. It's painful to breastfeed even though he is well latched on.
It's even more painful to pump so I feel like engorged breasts are only a matter of time. I try to pump on the lowest possible setting but that suction is not effective to get the milk out. I tried hand expression but it takes so long that I am still not able to empty the breasts.
I don't know what to do because if I can't pump then there's no breast milk for him to take to his care provider.
I need any suggestions, ideas FAST!!
