I guess I'm looking for a little reassurance and encouragement :-) I'vd still got half my pregnancy to go, but I'm already feeling anxious about BF.
Basically with DD1, feeding her was agony at first, and so the midwives got me to pump in hospy. My milk took days to come in, so then they got me to comp feed. When I got home it took ages for my nipples to toughen up, so I pumped and pumped, and fed her from a bottle at night to give my boobs a break! After about 4 months I could BF better but she fed all the time! It was like she was never satisfied.
We persevered until about 11 months when she began to self wean and she's a happy healthy little girl.
I guess I'm wondering...will it hurt so much the second time? Honestly I found BF pain worse than labour...it never ended! And I really want to avoid the pump this time if I can...
