Hi! SO: Everything is going great with my ds who is now 9 months--we're still going strong. My good friend is due to give birth any day now, with her second daughter. She stopped breastfeeding her now 3-year-old when she was about 2.5 weeks because she said it was extremely painful and I don't think she had too much support. She was also trying to pump which she said took too long--I told her to nix the pumping for the first few months if possible because it'll interfere with her milk production.
I was just wondering if you guys have any tips to make the whole process a little more comfortable for her--I'm going to tell her all I have to offer, but I was just sore and also have small breasts and had no engorgement or cracked nipples or anything like that. Are there remedies/tricks that anyone can offer? My friend has REALLY huge breasts (in fact, I'm having a hard time imagining them being any bigger than they are now!)
Thank you so much--I hope to offer a little wisdom and support to really help her do this.
