my baby girl is only a week old and my nipples were so bad they were cracked apart all the way around the nipple and would bleed when she fed. so i got a hand pump yesterday at wic to give my nipples a chance to heal. ive been pumping about an ounce a boob every 3 hours. and im afraid that if i cant get her to go back to boob then my supply will keep getting lower or she will start eating more and i cant produce enough. on my son i only got to breastfeed for the first two months bc of my milk supply just went away and i was pumping the last 5 to 6 weeks with him so im scared that will happen again.
