My son is 2 1/2 weeks old. I have been exclusively pumping because he was just killing me! It was so painful and my nipples were bleeding & it was just awful. Anyway - I am ready to give it another try. ANy tips on how to go about this? Do i still pump? I purchased a breast shield and was thinking about trying that? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I really want to breastfeed but i am having my doubts if it will be possible. Breastpumping has been working but i feel like i might be missing out!
