I was reading Baby Laughs by Jenny McCarthy and there was a chapter on breastfeeding. She never even tried it. No big deal. But she's talking about how she was still leaking all over the place for a while and how it hurt so bad because she was so swollen.
I never had that. No pain, no leaking. I got bigger, though. My son never latched on, but I tried pumping every two hours for 30 minutes each during the day for six weeks. I never made more than 3-4 ounces a day. I only leaked once, and my boobs had been squished that time while I wasn't wearing a bra.
Did you have that happen? Or were you more like Jenny? My experience is seeming more and more different from that of other women and I'm wondering if there is something wrong. I know they can give you a shot to start lactating; maybe something simple like that would work. I want to be able to figure out what happened last time before it comes time to do it again, you know?
