So my SIL gave us fair warning about the possibility of bloody barfs when BFing, and last night we found that she wasn't joking. Our 3 am feeding turned into an hour long discussion about whether the blood was mine or the baby's.
Seeing as he took a bottle and had a regular barf after that, we concluded that the blood was mine. Not totally surprising considering my boobs/nipples have been getting increasingly sore and his eating has become more vigorous due to a suspected growth spurt.
Anyhoo, he's been fine ever since - albeit absolutely famished - but I decided to start pumping this morning so the girls can heal.
Sorry for the novel. I guess I have just 2 questions; how long will it take for my boobs to heal? I mean, I'm pretty tough but they are kiiiiiilllllling me. And how does one go about simultaneously pumping and feeding?
I thought BFing was supposed to get easier after the 1st month
