I tried breastfeeding my little one and he never could conform my nipple to the shape needed for his little mouth. I even used a nipple shield until my nipples bled. I found a larger size of a shield and it made it a little easier, but still did not produce very satisfying results for either me or my son. I have still been pumping and feeding Hunter breast milk but it's become more a hassle to remember to pump after every feeding. I've decided to stop pumping and let my milk dry up. It's as painful as people have reported to me...anyone have any suggestions on going through this process with less pain? Thanks so much!
