Quoting Liam's Mama:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Jamie Horn:</b>" I have this question too....My baby is 3 days ... [snip!] ... he wants to. My son did. As far as your nipples, get some lansinoh cream. It'll help tons. Oh, and never wake a sleeping baby!"
I've started to just let him nurse as long as he wants. I have a friend that does 10 mins both breast with her daughter I don't think that's long enough if I did that with my baby he would scream!! I can't use the lansinoh cream I was told if you have an allergy to wool you can't use it so I found a cream tonight that is lanolin free and started using it I also use the hydrogel pads from medela it's getting better just the initial latch is painful then the rest is tugging that kinda tickles (weird I know) I'm clueless over this breast feeding thing I'm pretty sure my milk has started to come in tonight my boobs are super hard and big so I had to express some milk before and after baby nursed tonight and massages my breast while he was nursing it seemed to help alot but off to bed as we will be back up in a couple of hours to do this all over again, Thanks for the advise!
