You're never "empty". Think of them as a working factory, not a storage unto, you're always making milk! Nurse on one side til baby pops off, burp, try that side again and if baby refuses you can try the other side :)

I pump only... And have been for 8m... It's easy for me :) bfing would be hard for me! This is my first. Good Job on bfing its the best for them!!! My friend had a similar experience As you. With her first she didn't last that long but is going strong with her second. I think its due in large part to confidence. It's your second. Been there done that kind of confidence.

For me the pain went away pretty quickly, but then it came back but that's just because my son decided to get a little gummy with my nipples. (meaning he decided to gum them a lot for a while) so they got a little sore again. Try Lanolin if you don't get any better, or just do it now, it works pretty good. Or try ice cubes. Either one should help. Good luck mama, stick with it!

I tried to pump with my first and it was rough! Congrats on being able to do so! Also as for the confidence thing, I also think it has to do with the fact that we can't afford to buy baby formula. (I'm not on wic yet, working on that one)
