So I've been in touch with a lactation consultant this week. She's been helping me a lot. She told me about something new today. I woke up with super painful, swollen breasts. It didn't go away even after pumping. She toxld me to soak my breasts in warm water, massage them all over, and hand express into the water. Holy cow the relief! I found sore spits I didn't know I had. More amazing, it made it possible for me to get in Breņa's mouth far enough for a good latch. I didn't know you could be too full for good latches.

She said to do this before every feeding.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
