Hello ladies, well after our dramatic few days we are still in the hospital with the idea of letting us out on Monday. Little one is doing fab and I'm recovering slowly! I'm really wanting to breast feed and trying so hard to but little one managed to crack both my nipples, give me blisters and make them bleed in one night! So midwife suggested I take the day off, top him up with formula and also express milk and try again today. I have been applying lanolin every hour and jelo net and roughly managing to express about 10-15ml at a time. But I'm still so sore and even expressing has me wincing. I really do want to breastfeed and I enjoy doing so when able to but it is so painful and little one is so unsettled because he just wasnt getting enough I don't know what to do and it's making me feel awful and not good enough! I hate the idea I'm not able to feed my own baby x
