Thanks to all of you for your advice and encouragement. I'm thankful that my issue at the moment is probably just something that will need to heal and a technical thing like positioning. Have the ointment, will 'air' my nipples more often, hand express for gentler treatment until I see the midwives at some point today and generally try to stay relaxed and positive. Bedlover I was so glad to get home. Couldn't sleep at all in hospital and picked sleep over the BF support. C-Section stuff still is uncomfortable 3 days on but I'm guessing that might be normal.
Thanks for dropping in Rachael and for your tips.
Amps I don't have a rash but it's early days for me.
It's great so many of us want to continue and I think there will be an even greater need for support or advice post baby than with pregnancy in some ways!
JJ yay for sleep and for going home!
