Yes I have it on both wrists. It would wake me up with a sharp pain in the morning and was causing my arms and hands to have some numbness. It got so bad I couldn't lift Rosie in the morning to feed her. DH had to get her up and position her for me.

I went to an orthopedic doctor and got 2 cortisone shots, 1 in each wrist. He said that should last and I only had to avoid breast feeding for 4 hours after the shots according to the pediatrician and midwife. He didnt want to give me the wrist splints because it would be hard to care for the baby. do you find it is interfering with taking care of your daughter? mine is definitely better now and i am trying to be careful to lift her properly so it doesnt startup again.
