I need to find a local LC my insurance will cover. I spoke to my midwife about it and she helped me find the problem (I was still exclusively pumping until yesterday because every time I tried to feed it hurt like hell, despite her having a beautiful latch! The problem was simple--I needed nipple cream BEFORE feeding. I was only using it after. For some reason using it before stops the baby from clamping down on me. It's the weirdest thing! So now here we go again...

And yes she is preemie and was in NICU for 6 weeks.
