My twins are a week old today, and I made through a few days of breastfeeding before I couldn't do it anymore. The pain, tears, bleeding and cracking were making me not enjoy having babies, so I'm on a pumping break. I have pumped for 48 hours now and would like to at least try breastfeeding again, maybe today and I do plan to seek help from an LC, but it will be a few days). So...this is gross, but does anyone know if it would be better to try them while the scabs are firmer or post-pump when they're really soft? Either way I'm a little scared the scabs will come off, but I'm curious if anyone has advice.
