I am a breast cancer survivor and had to have a mastectomy on one breast. I firmly believe that 'breast is best' and have successfully nursed my daughter peyton with one breast. I recently had twins...Loralei and Benjamin on June 19 and I am having a hard time with breastfeeding. In the past with my twins I would nurse them both at the same time, but having only one breast now it is just difficult. On top of that Peyton is still nursing and is not ready to wean. I am producing enough milk to satisfy all three of them, but it seems I constantly have a chlid attached to my breast because I have to have them each on a different feeding schedule and my poor nipple is so sore.I am at a loss for what to do. Do I force wean Peyton to save my sanity or do I just grin and bear it?
