Also, I'd say to try Lanolin on your nipples...I get chaffed at first, but I smother them with Lanolin and it helps enough so that I dont even need to use it any more...

The leaking stinks, I leak out one side if I'm feeding her out of the other side every single time...if my breast pads are in an awkward position, I find out very quickly with a lovely milk stain if I'm not careful...fwiw, with Kaiden, I stopped leaking around 5 months, dont know why...
Good to hear about your experiences. I have been slathering my nipples with lanolin since I was in the hospital. I notice that they feel the worst when he's been cluster feeding. I just need to toughen them up.
