Hi, my name is Dawn and I?m expecting DD (my 2nd baby) in October. When DS was born I had no clue what to expect, didn?t know what I was doing, etc. All things first moms are faced with. I took a breastfeeding class at the hospital before giving birth, tried to do research on what to do and what not to do, etc. I found that after DS was born I was getting conflicting ?help? from my nurses and the hospital lactation consultant. Very overwhelming. Luckily my pediatricians office staffs LCs who I saw several times right after DS was born. Nothing I did seemed to work and I ended up pumping and feeding until my supply ran out at around 9 weeks.
See I have inverted nipples and I think my DS was just too lazy to make it work. I tried the nipple shields and they didn?t even help that much. Does anyone else have inverted nipples? Have you had breastfeeding success? Please tell me what you did to make it work? I really hope that this time around is easier for me. I?m willing to try anything!
