I am a brand new mommy..my son is only 20 days old today and I am excusivly breast feeding and won't so formula. Anyways my problem is this my left side always hurts way more than my right. Now I know we are still mastering our technique and what not and I don't always get him latched on properly..but today for example I had to feed him mainly on my right side because my left was just sooo sore from trying so much last night (I usually switch them off at every feeding)I was just wondering if I should start pumping that side or any side for that matter if it gets to sore for me to feed him on it. I tried to self relive in the shower and it just seemed like it was taking forever and I got tired..
I'm affraid to start pumping and bottle feeding and breast feeding because I want him to still breast feed, but then I was reading a convo someone had posted in here about the baby rejecting the bottle because it wasn't introduced soon enough..I'm just so torn and don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated..
(Oh and about the pain, I know he has Thrash and I guess I may too so that might be contributing too, any suggestions for it? He has his medicine and its starting to clear up..)
