    Wow, thank you! That article is so spot on. Thats full of things i could try. I really need to be more assertive with the nurses & the LC next time. They were really doing my head in. I'll keep that for reference...

    And those cookies do sound yummy

    I'm so glad it was helpful. I really had to have DH be my advocate with nurses and LC's - oh just a thought, you could put your requests in a birth plan and then it's in your file and whenever anyone is giving you grief, you say please refer to my notes. AKA pull your bloody head in!

    I have issues with my breasts because of abuse issues too. It's great that you are thinking about trying breastfeeding again. I found that cognitive behaviour therapy helped enormously. It redirected my brain so to speak and over time it became easier. Breastfeeding ended up being incredibly healing for me. I still have breast issues, but can look at them without pain hate and fear now.
    the other advise you have recieved is fantastic too. Please also remember its ok if you cannot breastfeed. You are still an amazing mother regardless of how you feed and if its not possible never feel that your emotional and mental health weren't important or were to blame.
