Re: No milk left because DD ate for 3 hours
You certainly can continue to try to nurse. You can also try other things, including:

There's ALWAYS milk. ALWAYS. The baby may have to work harder to get the milk out, but it's there. Check out this link about fussiness at the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...e-nursing.html
Does this apply only if it appears that there is no milk? What if there is milk when I express or if my breast is actually leaking when she fussed off, would that be a different problem?
