As for the going out at 2 weeks I think it's healthy for you and baby to get out so that the baby gets used to being out of their environment so that later on the will be accustomed to going in the car, being surrounded by unfamiliar faces, different noises, etc
    Babys go through massive growth spurts in the first 3 weeks of their lives just bare with it and it will get better.
    I found that letting my baby get to crying stage at night would make her hard to settle and stay awake longer.....can you tell the difference between your babys hunger signs and babys unsettled signs?as soon as I see hunger signs I feed her and she will go back to sleep even if it meant getting up for 10 min to pop her on the boob. At least I was only awake for 10 min instead of an hour or two because she was screaming and upset and wide awake because I was talking to her to settle her.
    I'm gonna push DH to start bathing daily too he is just paranoid he'll catch a cold!

    Well we had a solid 2 hour sleep from 9.45-11.45 (seems to be the time of the day he sleeps the most at the moment). A 2 hour sleep for me feels like much more for me at the moment so slightly happier now!!

    Put a heat pack on it before feeding or pumping & massage with the palm of your hand, get DH to help if in an awkward spot.. Good luck!

    i find heat 5 mins before you feed to help - small heat bag

    also, rub from fatty tissue to nipple with firm pressure in a hot shower - i use cetaphil not soap.
    hand expressing can also help.

    hope it goes soon!

    KM yep I agree, rub it quite firmly it works well if you do the rubbing when you pump, pop a heat pack on first. I've lost count how many I've rubbed out now

    Thanks, I managed to move it! It was actually skin which had healed over a duct from a cracked nipple Funny when I scratched at the skin, it was like a fountain for awhile! So glad it's gone
